Graduate Apprentice Residence Hall Director - Penland Hall

What is your favorite part about being a Graduate Apprentice Residence Hall Director?

My primary goal in life is to enrich the lives of others through relationship development and authentic conversation. Residence life provides the environment that encourages these types of relationships and it's what I'm excited for most as a Graduate Residence Hall Director.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

An authentic Christian community is a place where we can feel freedom to express who we are in a manner that brings glory to God. It's a place where we can lift each other up when we are discouraged and a place where we can band together to serve others when they need a community to support them.
