Mississippi School for the Arts | Calvary Baptist Church (Columbia, MS)
My favorite Bible passage is Romans 8:38-39, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” This is my favorite passage because it is a constant reminder of God’s unending, unfailing love. It reminds me that no matter what I do or say, God will always love me. His love does not discriminate or favor one person to another. This passage has been proven true to me so many times. I have seen and suffered through many things that most people are not aware of and this passage can wipe away all fear, doubt, and sadness and replace it with happiness, contentment, and peace.
Activities and Service to Others
At Columbia High School, I was co-captain of the basketball cheerleading squad, a five- year member of the CHS marching band, and held lead roles in the spring musicals for two years. I was a member of the Beta Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the CHS Limited Edition Show Choir. Currently, I am a vocal major at the Mississippi School of the Arts. At MSA, I am a member of the MSA Chorale, and the singing group Total Praize. Also, I am a member of BARK (Brookhaven Animal Rescue Klub) and I volunteer with Camellia Home Health and Hospice where I assist in recreational therapy with the sick and elderly. During the week, I attend Center Point Church where I lead worship with the worship team. When I am home on the weekends, I attend Calvary Baptist Church where I lead worship for the youth group, am an active member of the choir, assist in the preschool and elementary classes, and often sing specials whenever asked to do so. I have been a member of the Mississippi Baptist Symphony Orchestra, and have also been a volunteer leader at various Vacation Bible Schools.
I strongly believe that God is calling me to the medical field, specifically to be a critical care nurse in the U.S. Air Force. I have always had a heart for helping people and have always enjoyed science. Knowing that every day I will be helping soldiers serving our country will only increase my love for the job. My plans are to attend the University of Mississippi to obtain a BSN in nursing while in the Air Force ROTC; after graduation I hope to begin my career as a Critical Care Nurse for the USAF.
