About My Family

I grew up in southwest Louisiana within the Southern Baptist Church. I graduated from high school in 2017 and began to attend Northwestern State University of Louisiana (NSU). The summer after my freshman year of college, I participated in GenSend Chicago. During that summer, God shifted all of my plans. I fell in love with the people of Chicago, and I knew I must return as soon as possible.

I returned home and continued attending NSU. During this year at home, God began to prepare the way for me to move to Chicago to continue in the ministry He had set before me the previous summer. In January of 2019, I was accepted as a transfer student to the Urban Education program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and on June 1, 2019, I moved to Chicago permanently.

About My Ministry

While serving in Chicago with GenSend, I was introduced to Reborn Community Church in Garfield Park. Garfield Park is a neighborhood in Chicago that is often categorized by drugs, violence and poverty. Death surrounds this community. Luke 1:79 exclaims “to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” This is the power of the gospel that we seek to transform the lives of those who live here.

For me, this occurs through working with the children in Garfield Park by creating safe spaces of play and support as they walk through their daily lives. As I pursue a degree in Urban Education, my hope is to extend this ministry to the classroom. Working in urban contexts with children can be described as “growing roses in concrete” with hope as the cracks—the hope of the gospel.
