Novella Long

“Singing in the Stairwell in Andreas with everyone is probably the coolest experience I’ve had; I do it almost every Sunday and it just never gets old. Shouting 'Were You There' at the top of my lungs, rejoicing with everyone, and shaking the walls with praise is such an amazing feeling.”
  - Novella Long '19
