In His Words: How did you get where you are today? “As a missionary kid, I spent many of my childhood years in Africa, and I still have a heart for the continent. My time at SNU has allowed me to prepare for this career. I was able to study for a semester in DC through a CCCU program, and I spent a summer in Benin with the State Department. SNU has been so incredibly helpful through all these internships and programs. Also, I have had fantastic professors in both of my areas of study who have encouraged me. It’s thanks to them that I have been able to pursue such a wide range of interests and activities, which will benefit me in my future career.”
