I am a senior in high school. I was raised in church, and was became a preacher's daughter when I was in 6th grade. The pressure put on me was hard and I endured a lot of tripping up from running away from God, but He always managed to pull me back to Him. After much debate, my chosen major became fashion so that I could make cute fashions that were modest for christian girls and women. Barlowgirl has been a great inspiration to me throughout everything I've been through. They will always be my favorite band. When I first began pursuing modesty, I felt alone in it, like it was me against the world, but I wasn't. Barlowgirl's song "clothes" has always giveen me a good laugh and brightened my spirits when I'm feeling down and alone. When I was 16, I chose to not date, and "Average Girl" became my theme song. These songs have helped me through so much, and I know they will help me in the future, whatever may come.

Bible Museum tour summer 2012
From 2008 to 2012 I have had the privilege and honor of traveling to Perth Western Australia and London England. These two trips to the other side of the world were very powerful and insightful. In Perth Western Australia I worked as a manager for a basketball team and was a youth intern at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. While I lived in Perth I made friends that helped shape me into who I am today. In 2010 I went to London England over spring break. While I was there I met up with my neighbor Allison Kaye Parker who is the mother of one of my closest and dearest Australian mates. When I met up with her in London that was the highlight of my trip because, I have not seen her in two years. Those two trips were very life changing and insightful but the Bible Museum tour of 2012 was the trip that changed my life forever. This trip made me feel ecstatic about my faith and the Bible.
