What advice would you give to Echo applicants?
This might sound cliché and obvious coming from someone studying Theology, but I say it earnestly and with sincerity: root yourself in prayer. If you are wondering what God is calling you to do with your life, be in conversation with Him! Invite God into all of your decisions and all the steps of the application process.

What do you hope to do after Echo?
I really do not know where I will end up after Echo, but I would love to write for a publication of some sort. I also have a dream of eventually writing children's books. But, I would also love to continue working in a parish/diocese in some capacity. Wherever God calls me is where I intend to go.

What are your favorite hobbies and activities outside of your ministry work?
I am a huge sports fan, but I have a particular love for soccer. I try to watch and play it as much as I can, and I will talk about it with anyone. Aside from that, I also enjoy listening to music, anything outside, and the occasional Netflix binge.
