What is your favorite part about Young Life?
My favorite thing about Young Life is that it is a great tool to help spread the word of Jesus to high school kids.
Why did you want to be a leader?
I wanted to be a leader because I did Young Life in high school and it helped me to meet the Lord. So when I came to college, I felt called to become a Young Life leader and help kids the way I have been helped.
Are you happy being a leader at Anderson High School?
Yes, I love Anderson. Go Redskins!
What’s your favorite bible verse?
2 Corinthians 4:16-18. “That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
Is it hard to balance Young Life with your schoolwork and other activities?
If I manage my time, no it is not hard to balance. But, if I chose to not manage my time and watch twenty episodes of How I Met Your Mother, yes it becomes rather difficult.
