Graduation year: 2015
Hometown: Upland, IN
Why OC? I remember coming to Wheaton as a freshman and feeling so welcomed by the enthusiastic Orientation Committee. It left a lasting impression that I hope to be able to achieve.
About me: I lived the first 5 years of my life in Wheaton, but moved to Upland, IN when my father took a teaching position at Taylor University. I was homeschooled until 5th grade and then attended public school until graduation. I am in the middle of my family: 2 older sisters and one younger brother. I am the first of my immediate family to go to Wheaton. In terms of my future, I hold plans to become an orthopedic surgeon with open hands, praying that God's will be the ultimate goal.
Why Wheaton? I desired a Christian community that would challenge me in spiritual growth as well as in intellectual rigor. Wheaton is filled with faithful brothers and sisters, intentional professors, and great opportunities that will challenge and support me as I also hope to contribute to the community here at Wheaton and beyond.
Favorite place on campus? SAGA: There is food and there are friends. It doesn't get much better than that!
