During my junior year at Portland Adventist Academy, I had the opportunity to preach for the first time. I went up there and I preached my little heart out. I just remember getting off the stage and being like, “If I do anything with my life, this is what I need to be doing.” I knew ministry was more than just preaching from the pulpit, and the people-aspect of it was what I was leaning more towards.
There are girls [majoring] in religion, but I am the only one in theology. I really want a picture of all [the boys], with me in the middle just smiling. I love the guys in the theology department; they tease me and mess around, but at the end of the day, they are just the best. I wouldn’t change a thing; I love it!
