I am still in process, I am still learning, and I will never stay content with where I am at. I am thankful for the process that high education has afforded me. I am cognizant that my higher education is a privilege. Moving forward there are three things that I want to do in my life. First and foremost, I want to love Jesus radically and then love others out of my relationship with Jesus. I have experienced the deepest, and most sincere love there is, and that is through my relationship with Jesus. Second, I want to educate and love students radically. Teaching critical interpretation skills and helping students understand that their voices are going to change the world. I want student to know that their impact on history matters, and they can transform the world. Lastly I want to impact educational policy and curriculum nationally. I have a vision and goal one day to influence educational reform to create a more inclusive and ethnically centered educational system that recognizes all peoples and all identities. I will fight for my students, I will fight to have their voices heard, and I will fight for the voices that might not ever be heard.
I am still in a process, just as coffee is always a process, each step shaping who I am, and enjoying the process as I grow and learn.
19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever.
Below are the additional resources necessary for BIS 499
Bellow is my installation for BIS499 - Capstone class. I made my own coffee shop, serving cold brew that myself and a friend made the night before via the Chemex method of brewing. The purpose was to create a third space in which participants and myself could talk about the major themes of my undergraduate degree as well as leaving space to talk about human rights violations that people are thinking or dwelling upon in the current moment that we are living.
