I am from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am the youngest of three sisters and I love to play sports, especially football and softball. I recently graduated from Seton Hall University with Bachelor’s degrees in French and Catholic Theology. Throughout my time at the university I became involved in campus ministry and started volunteering. I fell in love with service and with ministering to those in need. In many of the people with whom I worked, I recognized a great desire to be loved.
Since entering college, I had planned on doing at least a year of service after graduation. I chose to serve with Heart’s Home because the mission of compassion serves to meet that need I have found in so many people who desire simply to be loved. I am going on a mission with Heart’s Home to Dakar, Senegal. It will be a challenge, with a new culture and new language, but I look forward to this mission and the opportunity for prayer, reflection, and simplicity in order to grow closer to Christ.
