Status: Junior
Major: Religion

"My faith informs my pursuit of truth at Pepperdine because it has emblazoned a curiosity of God inside me. As a religion major, I am able to appease my inquisitive nature by further exploring theology, history, biblical studies, ministry, and missiology. I put my best effort into my classes because I know that God will continue to reveal His wonders through my continued intellectual growth. My professors and mentors have instilled in me an eagerness for lifelong learning and have taught me the value of sharing knowledge with other people. Those who have served me have given me the compassion to serve others. And those who have been global citizens, throughout history, have given me an example of what it's like to make a difference in the world. Pepperdine is a university that seeks to transform its students into global citizens that will go on to help transform the world."
