Name one interesting fact about you: One thing that I have been blessed with the ability to do, is travel quite a bit. My parents wanted me to see the world, and because of that I have been to 13 different countries and 24 different States (plus D.C.).

Why did you sign-up for Compass? I signed up for Compass because I saw it as a great way to: stabilize myself before going into the next phase of my life, gain newfound friendships, and to grow closer with the Lord. It was also a great way for me to be exposed to new career paths that I had not explored, nor thought of in the past.

This time next year what do you want to say about your Gap Year Experience? I want to be able to say that I learned a lot about myself as a person, made lifelong friends, and truly came to know how God was going to put me on the walk of life that was perfect for me.

What would you say to someone who was thinking about taking a Gap Year? I would say that a Gap Year is a great way for people to take time and evaluate the path they want to take in life. Because of this, I think that it can lead to less stress and more calculated decisions about their life and the steps they need to take to get there.
