Senior Thesis Statement: Though a difficult task, we must mend this country, and to do this we must come together as Americans and learn what not to do by examining how we got to this point, we must make adaptations so that we do not find ourselves further divided, and we must learn how to mend and accept others who have differing views.

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster?
Definitely persevere. You never know what obstacles life will throw at you but you have to trust that God has it in His plan for you and will use it for good. As you progress in your life, don’t let little things overwhelm you and lead you to stray from the right path. You will have many instances where you are tempted to stray off the right path, just know that its temporary satisfaction. Keep your eyes on that path, trust God in all he does no matter how bad it may seem at the time, and persevere. 

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster:
Getting a Physics test postponed in very dramatic fashion and going to play ultimate frisbee with Mr. Woods.

“Let all bitterness and wrath and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 4:31-5:2,

Prayer Request: 
Mainly that I would not let myself get distracted, that I make wise decisions as I go to college, and for me to keep my priorities straight.
