MESSAGE

I was in my senior year of high school when the COVID-19 pandemic began. In the years prior, I had set high expectations for the conclusion of my high school career.

I started to fall into a depression, and my anxiety was the worst it had ever been. Every day seemed to get worse, and I felt as though I was moving further away from God. But little did I know that what God had in store for me was going to be so much more than I could have ever imagined.
