Where I serve

I am serving my third year at the University of Maryland in College Park close to my home 30 minutes away in Columbia, MD. University of Maryland is a wonderful, big campus with so many opportunities for people to learn, get involve and pursue whatever their dreams are taking them. However, it is also an environment for a huge temptation to get lost in the world among materialism, success, alcohol, sex, drugs, and worst of all relativism in which people do what they think feels good or is good to them as long as they are not getting in others own space. Fortunately for me, this creates an atmosphere where going out and speaking the truth and modeling authentic relationships is so much needed. In sum, I am very grateful for such an opportunistic campus to evangelize Jesus and share my life with those that are hurt, confused and lost.

My Story

I grew up in a very Catholic family and environment all through my life and have been blessed to have been given much knowledge and gifts to share with others about the faith as well as life in general. I graduated from Mount Saint Mary's University in 2014 where I studied Elementary/Special Education. It was during my first years in college that I really dived deep into my faith and prayer life and started to lead bible studies and bring people into relationship with Jesus and His Church. Thanks to the missionaries that were on my campus those years who all taught, inspired, challenged, and prayed for me out the love for God. This has now become the same desire and mission I have fallen in love with doing as a missionary.

Your Impact

 As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus. Know that without your help this mission wouldn't be possible; the lives of many young souls are at stake in a world full of corruption and sin that need to hear the message of the Gospel!
