My motto is: “Let’s build a world together.” My vision for life is to be a part and encourage a culture of creation, activation and collaboration. If it wasn’t for the CCSC Scholarship, I doubt I would’ve started my adventures here. I got to GCU after a representative visited my school.

Honor students always fill the lecture hall’s passion – that’s infectious. Their willingness to further their standing in life and push forward is inspiring. I had the privilege of going on a mission trip with 14 honors students – they were such an eclectic group, but they were forward-thinking and willing to see what God could do in their lives.
