Fun fact: I am part of my school’s cross country and track team. I also play three instruments for our marching band and youth praise band.

Favorite Bible verse: 1 John 3:16. This verse reminds me of what Jesus did for me on the cross and reminds me to spread God’s word.

Why YouthLead? I wanted to be a part of YouthLead because I love meeting other youth. I have been blessed to be able to go to the National Youth Gathering, our District Youth Gathering, and many other camps. I always get so much from these retreats and would like to help contribute to them. I am also very excited to be able to spread God’s word to anyone I can.

We’ve been very grateful for this chance for our daughter to use her leadership skills for the benefit of students in our synod. She uses them at school and work, but through YouthLead she can make an eternal difference.
