What do you like to do for fun?
I enjoy reading old books, drinking too much caffeine, petting strangers’ dogs, and taking long walks down every aisle at Target.

What was your most meaningful service experience in college and why?
During my senior year, I volunteered as an ESL teacher at a small ministry center near Samford. I taught three adult students, each of whom were immigrants not just from three different countries, but from three different continents. As I conversed with them each week during our English lessons, I loved observing and creating unity within different generations, cultures, and backgrounds.
