I am from Edmond, Oklahoma, USA. There I was raised in the church. My family and church taught me about God from a young age and helped me know him through Jesus Christ. During my youth, I was baptized in the name of Jesus and grew in faith during my High School years.

When I went to university, I could not decide what I wanted to do with my life, let alone decide what I should study or do professionally.  During my first summer break, I had the chance to come to Chemnitz, where I got to work alongside the church for six weeks. God taught me a lot through that experience about myself, and he gave me a focus for my life, showing me how important the work of his church is. After this experience, I wanted to give my life, both privately and professionally, to serve Christ and take care of his church.

In 2014, the church in Chemnitz invited me to come and work with the youth group, which I accepted. Now I have been working alongside the congregation since 2015. My goal is to lead young people to Christ, so that their lives will also be secured with Christ in the Father. I understand that God changes me through a lifelong process as follower. I have not yet been made completely perfect, but I trust my Lord Jesus and press on to take hold of that for which Jesus has taken hold of me through his death and resurrection (Philippians 3:12).
