What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why?
I want to go into ministry, specifically rescue and minister to women who are in the sex trafficking industry. I want to pursue this because it is my passion and my desire for people to know their identity and worth in God. I hope to not make this some far-off destiny that I hope one day to attain. I want to make this a reality now and take strides to live out my purpose in the present.
What do you hope to accomplish in life?
What a question! I think there's five things I really hope to do:
1. Eat Chick-Fil-A on a Sunday.
2. Become a sample lady at Costco.
3. Start a ministry of my own.
4. Be more like Jesus.
5. And I just want people to truly know God and pursue Him.
If I could do anything, it would be to ...
If my wallet was on board (and if it was brimming with greenbacks), I would take that person standing on the street with a sign on a shopping spree and just get to know their story.
That would be so rad. And then we could eat a lot of chicken wings together. Because when you take a bite of a wing, you taste a lil' bit of God's love.
Also, my parents own an orphanage in India, so I would really, really like to provide more than just the basic needs they are getting and really bless their life. Maybe with some extra pair of clothes and shoes or even some bunk beds.
