Best Thing About King’s: I love that King’s is a place that welcomes critical thinking and tough questions. I came here with a lot of assumptions about faith, ethics, and mortality, and I was challenged to think about those things in new ways. Being able to ask those questions in the context of a vibrant Christian community has really helped me have a deeper understanding of what I believe and why I believe it.

Advice for My Students: Don’t be afraid to try new things! You’re going to discover new talents and passions, and meet some great people along the way.
