- What was the greatest lesson you learned in college?
During my freshman year while speaking to my class, a professor said something along the lines of, "You literally will not be able to complete everything you're expected to do right now, and that's okay. It's impossible to do it all and to do it perfectly." This really resonated with me then and still resonates with me now. Perfectionism, particularly in school, can make everything so daunting. It's okay to acknowledge and respect our limits.
- What do you love about Biola?
I love that at Biola I get to be with people who are seeking to be like Christ. I love that it's not only a place where academic scholarship abounds but that our goal is to intimately integrate Christ in all we do, not just within the walls of the church.
- What advice would you give to online and graduate students?
The advice I would give to online and graduate students is to dig in. Embrace the unique experience of being personally taught and mentored by people who are experts in their field, especially in this era of fast information. Lastly, embrace the beautiful challenge of this time being about growth, transformation and mission, especially when things are tough.
- What is your favorite quote or bible verse?
One of my favorite Bible verses is 2 Kings 4:26, the last sentence in particular. I believe it's worth a lifetime of reflection.
