It's the 9th inning of the World Series, you're up to bat. What's your walk-up song?

If you could be friends with any fictional character, who would it be, and why?

I would definitely choose Yoda. His wisdom and personality really makes me happy and it makes me want to be more wise and make my sentences sound like his! But Yoda and I would make great friends for sure!

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Why or why not?

This is a tricky question, but I don't think a hot dog is not a sandwich, at least in my opinion. I just feel like a sandwich has two breads and a hot dog bun is not two pieces. I may not have a lot of facts to back this up, but my personal opinion is that they are not sandwiches.

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

I look forward to growing closer to campers and helping them know more about who Jesus is and what the gospel teaches us. I look forward to the hikes and just meeting campers!

What is your prayer for this summer?

I pray that God works in campers and staff in a way that He never has before. I pray that every camper knows more of who Jesus is by the end of their time at camp, and I also pray that God gives all the staff wisdom to speak what He wants us to speak, which could help campers grow closer together with God, their friends, family, and everyone they meet.
