How did you get involved with SEND to begin with?

I knew Brittany had gone through REACH, and that's probably the first time I'd ever heard about it.  I went to City Challenge between my junior and senior year, and that's what first got me thinking about going into REACH.

 

Where did you go while you were in REACH?

I went to Bangkok, Thailand.  We taught English to children at a temple school.  We traveled some, and we worked at a day care teaching English as well.  We made friends with people and did friendship evangelism.  We also helped the RMM workers with childcare, and other things.

 

What has been the best part of being a Staff Intern so far?

I guess learning more about furthering my relationship with God and getting to live here with all of these great people who are wonderful. 

 

Most embarrassing moment so far?

I was laying on my bunk bed and I didn't know how to get down, so I thought I would just fall and land on my feet.  And so I fell, and it was a lot farther down than I thought it was. I slammed my arm into Kellie's cabinet and the door totally shattered.  I was the only one downstairs at the time.  Then I had to go upstairs where everyone else was and confess that I "had an accident" because I didn't know what else to say to everyone.

 

What do you miss most from home?

My cat.  My family and my cat.  But most just my cat.

 

What's your idea of a perfect vacation?

Okay, perfect vacation.  Wow.  Doing something I've never done before, or going somewhere I've never gone before.  I don't care where that is, just doing something different.

 

If you could have any super power, which one would it be?

Invisibility.  Because then I could listen to everyone's conversations... and I want to do that.

 

What is the secret to understanding girls?

*laughs hysterically*  Give them chocolate and hug them when they cry.  Oh, and tell them they're always right too.
