Being born into Catholic Family, I was raised with Catholic morals and values. However, I treated faith as a tradition and I lacked a personal relationship with the Lord. As I was nearing the end of high school, I was getting farther and farther from God. I know I was searching for happiness through material things and shallow relationships. I was not happy but I did not know how or where to find happiness. It wasn’t until I found myself at a retreat, at the foot of the blessed sacrament where I encountered Christ. I was overwhelmed with joy and a sense of ease and I knew that everything I was looking for was in Jesus. I knew I had to respond to this encounter of love and put Christ at the centre of my life. Fast forward a few years, I continuously seek Christ to guide my life, giving my “Yes” to the Lord, even in times of darkness or fear for I know He has the best plan for me.I knew I had to share this Good News.

As campus missionary, I will have the blessing and pleasure to be able to build into the leaders of tomorrow and bare witness to the Lord’s work as He changes the world one life at a time. I am beyond excited to be joining the Catholic community at Ryerson University and I know that by working together with students and with God’s grace, He will accomplish amazing things. There is no better feeling than to be serving the Lord and inviting students to put Christ at the centre of their lives.
