Favorite season: Pi Day – because pie. She also loves Thanksgiving – fall is her favorite season and this holiday is the epitome of fall. She loves that it brings her family together to enjoy all that the season has to offer – and pie.

How she heard about Sole Hope: She came across Sole Hope on Instagram, finding our internship program and information about what Sole Hope does on the ground in Uganda. She applied shortly after for the Summer 2014 Internship.

Why she was interested in the Sole Hope internship: She has been very interested in missions for a very long time – not knowing the right organization or country or what the “perfect fit” would look like. Once she stumbled upon the Sole Hope Instagram, something clicked. She saw that there was an internship opportunity for the summer. She would love to work overseas long term – this was the perfect stepping-stone.
