Favorite Calvin memory

I loved participating in Rangeela because it gave me a chance to share my culture with the Calvin community while learning about other cultures. It is a great reminder of how beautifully diverse heaven will be.

How did your faith grow at Calvin?

Calvin was formative for me in many ways, the biggest being spiritual formation. I grew deeper in my understanding of who Christ is and his unconditional love for me as I was challenged to think deeper in and out of class. I was equipped to own my faith through the buffet of options offered spiritually such as Bible study on each dorm floor, chapel every day, and dorm worship which helped me find my place and pace.

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

Live wholeheartedly. Over my 10 years as a member of the Calvin community, I have grown to live more intentionally each day for Christ. I am thankful to wake up each day with a purpose and calling to serve students and to live fully into God's call on my life to kingdom-build every where I am sent.
