I am 21 and just graduated from Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky, in May with a bachelor of arts in Psychology and a minor in Educational Studies. I grew up in Hopkinsville, a medium-sized town in Western Kentucky. My involvement here and my attendance at camp every summer have led me to want to pursue a career in ministry. Additionally, after being an intern at Dress for Success in Lexington this year, I have found a love for nonprofit work and hope to find a way to pair these two passions into a career. I believe that NBA XPLOR will help me find a way to do this.
I am definitely nervous about going across the country away from all of the people I love, yet I look forward to the challenge and to expressing my passion for service with XPLOR's "Hands on Service" cornerstone. In what little spare time I have, I like to spend time with my friends and have made a conscious effort to stay active particularly with my newly acquired bike which I hope to bring with me.
