Why SG? After being at Wheaton for 2 years and seeing how SG has changed and influenced the campus community I realized that I wanted to be a part of the growth that SG is creating on campus.
About me: I was born in Atlanta, GA, but grew up in Baltimore MD (Go Ravens!) for the majority of my childhood and teenage years. I have two sisters 19 and 17, one of whom goes to Messiah College in PA and the other is a senior in high school. After Wheaton, I hope to be working in the health field in some capacity. My dream would be to be running an AIDS clinic in a third world country. I also may apply for Teach for America to teach science classes!
Why Wheaton? I chose Wheaton College, first and foremost, because of the school's dedication to growing students in their relationship with Christ. I loved the integration of faith and learning through the liberal arts education. I really wanted to be in an environment where my love for Christ would grow and my faith would be challenged. I was able to find that here! The college's close location to Chicago was also very important to me as well.
What would you like to achieve by being a part of Student Government this year? On SG this year, I would like to see more communication between the board and the campus community. We are here to serve the students and to be a link between them and the higher administration. I hope that we can create a feeling on campus that we are open to new ideas and thoughts as a board.
Favorite Wheatonism: SAGA dates
Most memorable experience at Wheaton: My most memorable experience at Wheaton came this summer when I participated in Wheaton in the Holy Lands. For 6 weeks, I went to Israel, Turkey, Greece and Rome to study the Bible in following the steps of Jesus and Paul. The Bible came alive to me and I was challenged in my world view. It was truly an amazing experience!
How has the Wheaton Community impacted you? The Wheaton Community has truly taught me how to love. I have loved on international refugees, loved my roommates and learned to love those people who are struggling in their faith. It also has given me lifelong friends!
