My Story

I grew up going to church every Sunday and was very involved in Catholic faith, participating in CCD and CYO during high school. I then received a scholarship to attend Pearl River Community College and then Mississippi State University, where I continued practicing the Catholic faith. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I became more of a “box checking Catholic”, attending mass and confession but not fully participating. I eventually was motivated to get more involved with the Catholic community at Mississippi State University, St. Joseph, and the FOCUS group there. Through the FOCUS missionaries, I was presented the gospel in such a way that it radically changed my life. Now as a FOCUS missionary I am seeking to change the world by bringing the love and joy I experienced to all of the students I am honored to serve.
