I am a recent UCF honors graduate with a major in Philosophy and minor in Cognitive Science. I admire thinking about the big questions and sharing them with others. God’s word has always been central in my heart as a guide to how to see and view the world. Apologetics is more than a hobby for me. It is something I aim to practice everyday. Reading and studying God’s revelation and the world that he has created is the biggest characteristic about me. I was raised in a Christian household and since I was thirteen I began to participate in foreign mission trips, which increased my love for evangelism. I also enjoy community. Whether it is with friends or even strangers, I love to be where people are and yearn to make relationships.
Defending and sharing my faith has been a strong passion of mine since I began to be a missionary at age thirteen. I was raised to be an evangelist during this age and as time passed, my ambition to know and defend the truth of the Gospel started to skyrocket. In high school, I was one of those kids that would pass out tracks during lunch and invite people to the Christian club at school. In college, this passion did not change. I started to take apologetics very seriously due to the increasing about skepticism found in college classrooms. This was one of the main reasons why I decided to major in philosophy. As a philosophy major, I spent most of my time learning the ins and outs of the skeptical world views that would argue against the truth of Christianity. Ironically, this only made my faith bolder and I began to be involved in the Ratio Christi chapter at UCF. This was a great outlet for me to share my faith with students on campus, as well as play a part in ministering to Christians who struggle with their faith. In the three years of taking a leadership role at Ratio Christi, I have fallen in love with the students here at UCF. Apologetics has not been a popular thing among many Christians on campus, however since my time involved with Ratio Christi, we have grown exponentially. My heart desires to see strong binds among Christian students who yearn for God’s word and to have the boldness to share it with confidence. This is why I am so enthusiastic about leading the Ratio Christi ministry at UCF. It has always been my goal to have a job where I can express and share the same love for the Gospel as I did when I was thirteen.
