Favorite Calvin memory

I was transformed by my semester abroad in Thailand. It opened my eyes to a different way of life, changed my perspective of the world, and opened up so many opportunities for further growth.

How did your faith grow at Calvin?

My faith grew tangibly in an environment where questions are celebrated, and I was invited to conversations where I could learn from students with many different stories and experiences. Additionally, I was repeatedly reminded that my story was part of Christ's bigger story of restoring all things.

What part of Calvin’s mission resonates with you, and why?

The call act justly challenges me daily to think about the way I live. I love this part of the mission because it calls us to seek to bring the best version of ourselves to other and seek justice holistically in the areas that we can have an impact.
