Khalid is from Brooklyn, New York. He was serving as a United States Marine, based in North Carolina, at the time of his interview. His days were spent “either working out, reading books, or going to work.”

Khalid’s Most Likely To Is: "Most Likely to Get Out of the Military in a Few Months and Start School"

Khalid shared his approach to balancing his military identity with his personal one, and he explained why the tough-guy image of a Marine does not conflict with his desire to enter the medical or nursing profession.

We talked about some of the unique bonding experiences he went through while in boot camp, and Khalid explained the difference between coming home during his first year in the Marines and coming home in his final year.

He also spoke about what it’s been like to be serving in the military while so many justice and protest movements are taking place around the country.
