I have many goals and things that I would like to do; I would like to go on a mission trip to Africa during my college years or soon after. I would like to have a career that is fulfilling and meaningful after I graduate from college, and be able to empower adolescent kids in inner city or at risk schools to go to college and to believe in their own goals and dreams. I have no idea where I will be in ten years, but I want to be working towards change in the public school systems.
What excites you about the Vincentian Mission Fellows Program?
I am really excited and honored to be able to participate in the VMF Program. Not only will I get the opportunity to get to know and learn from students my own age, but I will be able to grow with them on this journey. I look forward to growing and maturing into a more Vincentian young adult and understanding more fully what this
entails. I am excited to hear everyone's stories and to grow close as
a group as well as with my mentor and the group as a whole.
