I was the first in my family to graduate from high school, and I am the first in my family to graduate with a bachelor’s degree. I have already accepted a job as a high school teacher at North Dallas Adventist Academy, and I cannot wait to be the mentor to my students that my educators have been to me throughout the years.
I wasn’t a believer before I attended Southwestern. I studied and was baptized while there. . . . Southwestern is where I found my passion, where I learned to think and to work like a professional, to make lifelong connections, and to balance all the important matters of life.
