As a spotlight performer, individuals are chosen by leadership for demonstrating one or more of the 22nd ARW commander's intents: Foster a culture of excellence ... Develop the next generation of leaders ... Set and achieve goals.

Capt. Leslie Schulman, 22nd Air Refueling Wing Judge Advocate operations law chief and trial counsel, has been in the Air Force for 2 years and has been stationed at McConnell since the completion of technical training. In her spare time, the Austin, Texas, native enjoys concerts, photography, hiking, playing volleyball and tennis.

Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My mom is the most positive influence in my life. She is real supportive, I go to her whenever I have a career advice question, anything really. She was a teacher for many years and she was always a natural teacher to me. She's real positive and very supportive of everything.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
I would love to deploy so I can help with the detainee operations in Afghanistan and do something involved with the war before we completely pull out. Other than that, I'd love to go on and be a senior trial counsel, or a defense counsel. If there is an opportunity, I would love to do something with counter-terrorism.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
Egypt is the most interesting place I have been. The culture was interesting, the history was amazing, and getting to see the pyramids was cool. It's a very pretty country and I thought it was really neat to see a place that old, with so much history.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
My favorite movie is The Shawshank Redemption. It's a great film that is very well done and the acting is great.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would like to meet the president because it'd be awesome to meet him, shake his hand, and talk with him to find out where his decisions come from and the challenges he faces. It would be really interesting -- especially as a military member -- to meet the president, the one who makes all our decisions, our commander in chief.
