Working towards a diploma in Early Childhood Education while trying to maintain a social life
Youth leader for several years at Broadway Church, camp counsellor for six summers, preschool kids church volunteer for the past 10 years. I also spent the summer of 2016 volunteering for a school in Uganda.
I became a Christian when…
I was five years old. My family and I had just gotten back after a camping trip, and as my mom was tucking me into bed, I asked if she could help me let Jesus live in my heart.
A few of my favourite things...
Coffee, the ocean, exploring, painting/drawing, and spending time with family and friends as often as I can.
What I would say to my teenage self:
“Breathe. It gets better than this. No one has it all figured out, so stop stressing so much about it! And don’t be afraid to trust and open up to those close to you.”
A Bible Verse I love:
"Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."
I learnt this verse in Sunday school when I was around five years old, and it has stuck so strongly with me every since. When I would be scared as a little kid, I would recite it over and over again while praying to God. And even now, it brings such comfort to me knowing that my God is always going to be there for me, as He has continued to prove so to me.
