Senior Thesis Statement: Systematic racism is a serious issue in our country and we as Christians are called to take action and make a change.

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster? Follow deadlines, if you get your work in on time and do it well the first time it will make your life a whole lot easier.

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster: Taking everyone’s pinecones with Edmond and Christian for a rhetoric analogy and putting them in a stack on Mr woods desk, to later hear that he had a important meeting the next period and had to awkwardly scrape them off into his trash can in front of those he was meeting with. 

Bible Verse: “My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory” (James 2:1).

Prayer Request: That I will stay motivated and persevere through the guaranteed tough times ahead of me.
