January 2021 Fellows
I grew up in Sulphur Springs, Texas before moving to Tyler, Texas to attend the University of Texas at Tyler. There I studied psychology and marketing while also playing for the UT Tyler Women’s Soccer team.
Fighting human trafficking has always been my dream, but it felt almost impossible to know where to even begin. That’s why I’m thankful for Raising a Voice and this fellowship opportunity. I am eager to learn and gain field experience as well as diving into community. My vision for this fellowship is growth and grit. I hope to be sharpened and refined in this season so the Lord can use me in more ways to bring him glory. This organization is truly special and I am lucky to be able to grow alongside it!
I am 24 years old and I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. In college I studied to be an American Sign Language/English interpreter. I went on the international World Race in August of 2018, and World Race America in January 2020.
During my time traveling, I have been able to work both domestically and internationally with anti-trafficking ministries. From Thai red light districts, to Haitian safe houses, and strip clubs in Columbus, Georgia, there is so much brokenness that goes overlooked in both the Johns and the women and children stuck in these industries that can only be made whole through the power of the Gospel and a transformative work of the Holy Spirit. I am excited and honored to join into the work that the Lord is already doing this year to set captives free, both physically and spiritually.
