What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster?
If you do poorly on something like a project or a test, don’t beat yourself up about it, but learn from your mistakes and figure out how you can improve.

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster:
One of my favorite experiences at Westminster was in 8th grade when our class all got together and brought snacks to have a feast in Mr. Davis’ Bible class.

Favorite Bible Verse: 
“Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty. The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress. Therefore, people revere him, for does he not have regard for all the wise in heart?” (Job 37:22-24).

Prayer Request:  Please pray for me as I go off to college so that I may have a successful and fulfilling career.
