Living with my roommate, Ross Blaising on the Ghetto.

Ross Blaising. He is a constant friend and an honest accountability partner. Living with him has taught me a thousand things about myself – how to love and serve others and how to be increasingly faithful in my walk with Christ.

From after dinner to around midnight. I hang out in the library, read, drink some coffee, journal, write papers, and so on.

I hope to teach literature, whether in high school or college. We will see what doors open.


How is Covenant equipping you for the future?

Covenant’s English professors are teaching me a heck of a lot about literature, how to read it and write about it, so that’s important for my future. Most importantly, Covenant is teaching me heck of a lot about what it looks like to walk with the Lord in a community.
