I never expected to return to college after leaving Johnson University (Johnson Bible College when I attended) and began working for the next five years. Even while I was out of school, I wrote and took photographs on my dad's Canon to fill my creative expression. It wasn't until 2015 when I decided to return to school. The University of Tennessee was my original plan because I was interested in the Creative Writing Major offered, but East Tennessee State University became my better option. I had to move to a Journalism Major and make my minor Creative Writing, but so far it is proving worth it. During my college career, I have found a deep love for photojournalism and having a pen in my hand. When it comes time for me to graduate and pick a career, the call of missionary work will be answered. My intention is to use my writing and photography to tell the stories of whatever culture I become a part of as well as tell the story of my family. I plan to take my pen, notebook, Canon T6, and future husband on incredible adventures.
Lincoln is an interesting kind of dog. He's the two-year-old of a female purebred black Labrador Retriever (now deceased) and a male unknown dog. His fur is too long for a lab and his tail curls upward at it waves in excitement. He hardly listens unless he knows food is on the other side of the command. He gets jealous when attention is not on him. He's under 50 pounds and scared of far too much. Lincoln is an interesting kind of dog.
