*chicago living


Surprise! I live in the illustrious Chicago, Illinois currently, and I’m loving it.

While in Chicago I attend Moody Bible Institute. Moody is a school dedicated to training young leaders for the ministry, and I’m currently working to attain my Bachelors in Biblical Studies so that I can be equipped to serve in any kind of ministry God may call me to. I love the Word of God and I could not possibly be pursuing a degree better suited to my passions and natural inclinations. What a gift!

Chicago is colourful and loud and beautiful and I still get lost sometimes. I had no idea I would end up at Moody when I graduated high school, and I may have taken a round-about way to get here, but I’m so glad God has brought me here. (The “round-about” includes a pretty much pointless year in university and a stint in Kenya, but I made it… eventually!)

While at Moody, I have the incredible privilege of being the RA of Houghton 4 West, which is a floor made up of wonderful young women whom I have come to love dearly. They are truly some of the best friends I’ve ever had. I also get to work as the Student Events Coordinator on campus, and I adore my coworkers and supervisors. This year I’ll be helping one of my favourite profs out, Dr. Sanchez, which is a wonderful opportunity that I’m very grateful for. And one of my fellow TAs interned at Nairobi Chapel, as well, which is so fun!! Lastly, I get to serve as a campus Ambassador, which is a blast. (: I pretty much always have my head down studying, but when I’m not hard at work, I love to explore Chicago and spend time with my floor and our brother floor (Culby 16). I live a great life here. It’s a joy! 🙂
