Default Girl joining the Army Reserve

I'm a 19 year old college student who's thinking about joining the Army Reserve in the hopes of taking an army media job once I return home from training. I know I can do it mentally... but I'm unsure if I can do it physically. I'm 5'2", 110 pounds, overall a small girl. I want to be able to gain more body strength and ultimately finish BCT, but do I even have a chance? I've heard many stories about how hard training can get... I'm unsure if my body can even handle it. Also, a friend of mine who's an ex-Marine says that the chances of me getting deployed are a lot greater given the current situations? I'm not sure if that's 100% true though... any insight on that would be great. Thanks so much!
