Bio: Absolutely everything good in me is Jesus Christ. His love for a flawed human like me is mind blowing. Without Him, life has no meaning. I'm a junior at the beautiful Appalachian State University and I am a declared Middle Grades education major with concentrations in Social Studies and Language Arts. Needless to say, I'm in for it! Sometimes, I pray and pray that God will lead me in a different direction, but He keeps on reminding me of my love for learning, as well as how rewarding it is to help students in the "awkward stage" discover their gifts and passions. I'm from a relatively small town called Lincolnton. Basically, I think the world of that place. Most my age despise it and wouldn't come back if it was the last place left on Earth. To me, it will always be home; full of the people I love most, and memories I hold dear to my heart.
