I was born in Philadelphia, PA on August 15th, 1999. Growing up, I never stayed in one area for too long, moving from PA to Korea, then Ohio, then Georgia, then California, and finally back to Ardmore, PA. My father was a vocational pastor, so when he felt called to serve in a different area, our family would pack up our bags and move. Although it was difficult to constantly move and re-adjust, looking back, I’m grateful for the new experiences that came with moving to different states or countries.
After I moved back to Ardmore in seventh grade, I attended Haverford Middle School and Haverford Sr. High School. My fondest memories from my high school years were running track & field and attending Pioneers for Christ camp. I ran track and field all throughout middle school and high school and looking back, I would consider it my biggest school commitment. I gained countless valuable relationships through track and field and developed important soft skills that I use today, like leadership and teamwork. Attending Pioneers for Christ camp throughout middle school and high school was also one of my favorite memories due to the learning that took place and the community that I was a part of. These experiences and memories were pivotal in shaping me and developing me into the person I am today.
