Where are you at in life now? I just finished my senior year of High School and I have decided to stay home and work next year.
What takes up your spare time? Running! I was involved in both Cross Country and Track all throughout High School and Middle School. I have been running a long time.
Last good book you read: Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.
Hidden talent? Something that people might not guess about me is that I was in show choir for two years.
Favorite Restaurant: Mi Rancho! It’s a very good Mexican restaurant in my home town.
What is your ideal vacation destination, and what would you do there? The Black Hills of South Dakota! I went there with my family a couple summers ago and it was amazing. The beauties God created in that region are absolutely awe inspiring.
Favorite Bible Story: The story of Joseph and how he was able to forgive his brothers after they betrayed him by selling him into slavery and how God used his trials for good.
A Bible verse that has been important to you this year: Philippians 4:13
Favorite thing about Bluewater: My favorite thing about Bluewater is the overall atmosphere of the camp. Bluewater is by far the safest, friendliest place I have ever been. I have been going to Bluewater since I was little and never once have I felt that I struggled to fit in. Everyone is just free to be themselves and have a good time!
What I’m most excited about for this summer: What I am most excited for this summer is the never ending worship of our amazing God. To worship and praise God daily in such an awesome place is so special and I can’t wait to get there!
