Senior Thesis Title: Animals: A New Perspective

College Choice OR How you plan to spend next year? I plan to take a gap year to travel and to compete in horse shows. 

Intended Major or field of work after Westminster: Animal Science

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster? Don’t stress yourself out over grades or popularity, just be yourself and enjoy life.

Favorite Bible Verse: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self seeking. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).

Prayer Request: For my classmates to be strong in their faith as we all go separate ways and pursue our next phase in life.
