My Story


College students especially know the difficulty of balancing school, friends, work, and any variety of other commitments. As a college junior working a part-time job, completing at least 15 hours of clinical rotations per week, and taking a full class load, life can get pretty hectic-believe me. 

So you can better understand my perspective on life, here's a little bit of my story. I grew up on a farm in the rural Midwest, where I learned the value of hard work, dedication, and determination. After highschool, I decided to move to Virginia for college, where I am currently a junior. Moving from the quiet Midwest to the noisy, busy east coast has been a huge difference and a lot of doubts have come with it. Am I good enough to be here? Where do I fit in? Are my values somehow lessened now that I'm no longer at 'home'? Will people understand me? 

Along with all of those doubts, I have learned so much about independence, trusting God, and standing up for what I believe is right. I've had some conversations where I've been encouraged and some conversations where I've left discouraged, but I know that ultimately what matters is not what others think of me. What matters is that, despite discouragement, I follow Christ, make Him known, and live my life for Him. If you are a college student or are struggling with knowing if where you are is where God wants you, I know what you're going through.
