Certain events in our lives can transform who we are, what we do, and how we see the world.
That transformation has happened for me at York College.
In high school, I was very focused on academics and baseball. I was shy and didn’t engage much socially. I never felt like I was making a difference or leaving a legacy at Broomfield High.
The moment I set foot on campus at YC, I knew it was going to be different. I found a sense of community, family, and an abundance of opportunities to get involved. This along with the great support of the faculty and student body, pulled me out of my shell. Today I’m on the baseball team, but I am also a residence assistant in the dorms, secretary for Phi Beta Lambda Business Club, a member of Sig Tau social club, a member of the Campus PR Squad, and I work for the admissions office--telling others about what makes York College so special.
I’ve been pushed beyond my comfort zone to make an impact on this campus. And it’s made an impact on me, too.
I don’t come from a religious background. My parents go to church and believe in God, but I had very little faith or knowledge of the Bible when I first arrived on campus. I felt overwhelmed at chapel and in my freshman Bible class. I still vividly remember an embarrassing moment on the first day of class when I had to ask another student where the Gospels were located. I had a lot to learn!
I still do. But after attending chapels, devotionals, church services and Bible classes for the past year at YC, I can feel my faith growing. My experiences at York College have helped lay a foundation for my faith to flourish.
Through relationships with faculty and staff, supportive classmates, and God at work in this place, I have experienced transformation that has changed the course of my life. I’ve grown as a friend, teammate, leader, and as a Christian at York College.
For that, I am very grateful.
