Why JustCo? “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable... think about such things.” This popular Philippians 4 verse is a beautiful encouragement to pursue the things that are right in the world. JustCo, in my view, is a group of students eager to find the beauty in the world and enhance it.
About Me: After moving for a number of years when I was very young, my family settled in Geneva, NE, a small town of 2,200 people that I consider one of the best places on earth. My family consists of my two amazing parents both of whom I love very much, my sister who is a freshman of undecided major here at Wheaton, and my little brother who is an extremely tall sophomore in high school. After Wheaton, I hope to find a job doing something I love in a city that’s equally as enjoyable and live in a house that has a big enough backyard for me to own a dog.
Why Wheaton? From what I hear, these four college years are some of the most formative you will experience in your lifetime. I can’t think of a better place to ask the big questions, form the deepest relationships, and learn, learn, learn.
Favorite place you’ve traveled? Traveling around the world is great, but there’s no more satisfying destination than home. The food is guaranteed to be amazing, you already know the people are the best, and the accommodations are impeccable (there’s nothing like sleeping in your own bed).
Favorite Wheaton class: Also, 王老师是最好的!
Most memorable experience at Wheaton: The Gospel Choir took a trip to Florida during Spring Break of my freshman year. The whole experience was so incredible.
What makes Wheaton unique? It’s all about the people. The staff, professors, students, they all work together to make this place a one-of-a-kind learning and growing experience.
Favorite campus event: Talent show. So much talent, so much fun.
What does justice mean to you? This has actually been a big theme in our Justice Coalition meetings. We discussed the idea of justice being the creation of right relationships. Right relationships between family, friends, nature, neighbors, strangers -- the more we can model our relationships with those that surround us after what is right in God’s eyes the closer we come to the kingdom.
