As one of the two freshmen on the team, the memories of being a brand new college student are still fresh in my mind. It was a huge adjustment. I was in a new place with new people and new independence. It was uncomfortable. Nothing was familiar. Now that I have finished my freshman year, I can look back and see how much I have grown because of the discomfort I experienced. I was forced to adjust and embrace my new world.
I LOVED my first year of college. I am not afraid of new experiences or uncomfortable situations because they force growth. That’s why I am so excited to film this documentary and experience new things. As John taught me, the Church is global; it is everywhere. I am excited to see how Christ works here- through the people towards me and through me towards the people. I pray my heart is open to embrace this new experience.
Discomfort forces growth.
