Goals/Passions/Ministry Interests: I am hoping to go on to get a degree in International Law after I finish at Moody. The Lord has combined in me a deep love and concern for women with a burden for those who are oppressed and have no one to come to their aid, and so I am hoping to work on their behalf. My dream is to get involved in the legislative process of extending protection to women in Muslim countries. I want these women to see what our God is like, that He is good and loving. I am so excited to think of the way the gospel restores their dignity and reveals their value to our God.
