Student Government

Graduation year:  2014

Hometown:  Centennial, CO

Major:  Business/Economics

Position on SG:  Student Body VP

Why SG?  It's has been an incredible experience to get to know the college's administration and see their hearts for these students. Student Government is a great way to not only give back to a school that has blessed me, but to further connect the voices of the students to the administration that cares about them.

About Me:  I grew up hiking and climbing things in the beautiful state of Colorado, and am first in my family to attend Wheaton. My best friends are my older brother, who is a year ahead of me in school and my younger sister who just embarked on her first year of high school. After graduation, I hope to attend law school and work for either the non-profit sector, or in public service.

Why Wheaton? I was really blessed by the people I met when I visited Wheaton, specifically my tour guide who truly had a relationship with the Lord and challenged me to turn to Him for a college decision.  This was just one of the ways I noticed Wheaton to be a unique place with intentional people actively working to build the Kingdom of God.

What would you like to see happen as a result of being on Student Government this year? I want to learn what it means to love people--truly love them. I want to learn what it means to get up and do something for the Kingdom of God. I want for us as a community to embark on this adventure called faith, take risks, and never look back.

How has the Wheaton Community impacted you? In more ways than fits on this website, but first and foremost through its ability to prove the power and love of God through everything--its brokenness, its laughter, its hope.
