Hi! In May 2019 I graduated from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education and American History. This fall, I will return to UNC to get my Master of Arts degree in Teaching with the goal of becoming an elementary school teacher.
I grew up in Wilmington, N.C., and even though my family moved to Charlotte, N.C., following my senior year of high school, I still consider Wilmington and the beach to be my “home”.
I have participated in sports my whole life and I enjoy anything that keeps me active. During the summer, I love going out on the boat and waterskiing or wake boarding, but I also enjoy being able to lie out on the beach and read or play land sports.
At UNC, I learned what it means to be a disciple of Christ and how I can use what I have learned to go and make disciples on campus and in the world. Being the Youth Minister last summer allowed me to steward those skills to the youth of Topsail Island.
I am so excited to return this summer to continue sharing my faith with the youth and seeing the ways in which they help me grow in my faith and in my relationship with Christ.
My favorite Bible verse is from Psalms 19:1—
“The Heavens declare the glory of God, but the skies above proclaim His handiwork.”
