Tony Abiera M.A. '16

Hometown: Glenview, IL

Favorite Wheaton class/professor and why: Dr. Pierson - Dr. Pierson creates a safe and engaging learning community in her classroom. She deeply cares for her students and always shares a wealthy of wisdom from her years of experience in the field of TESOL and also as a missionary in Eastern Europe. She also somehow made a class on theories and methodologies interesting for me--that's saying something!                         

Internships/papers/research competitions entered during Graduate School? Billy Graham Scholar, pre-field missionary                         

Dream job: Anything involving traveling and meeting people from different cultures around the world. I would also love to use my passion for discipleship leadership development to further Christ's Kingdom in the least reached and least engaged places.
