Concert Pianist
Performance (Piano), B.M. '15
My time at Biola was absolutely invaluable to me in fostering a daily pursuit of truth, refinement, and fullness in Christ. It is not only that I look back and see that this school and community helped bring me to a new place of maturity and equipped me to enter a graduate program I am excited about, but Biola has also prepared me for an ongoing life of transformation, so that I may continue to grow in both Christlikeness and musical excellence.
