Biography

Favorite quote?

  • I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
    -C.S Lewis

 

If you could, what would you do to help make the world better and why?

  • I would love to go and teach children that don’t have access to schools.

 

What has been your greatest moment in life so far, athletically and non-athletically?

  • Athletically, finishing 5th in the ACAC last year was one of the most memorable and rewarding moments I have experienced.
  • Non-athletically – Getting baptized was a very memorable and significant step in my faith journey.

 

Best advice you have received? Best advice you would give someone?

  • My mom always encourages me to stop looking and wanting the destination but to enjoy the journey getting there. I guess I would just pass that advice on because it is something I think about daily and really makes life more enjoyable.

 

What Bible verse have you been most impacted by and why?

  • Micah 6:8 – “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” This verse has been one of my favorites and one I constantly look to as I seek to live my life for God. I love how practical the verse is; it has given me guidance in times when I have felt extremely lost or inadequate in my faith journey.

Who has been the biggest influence in your life and why?
