YAP | Youth Ambassador Program

I have a background in Aerospace Engineering with a focus on systems and project management. After graduating college, God lead me to live as a missionary for 3 years all over the world. I soon found myself as a 26 year old being invited to take up roots in Charlotte, NC as an Associate Youth Director. My mind in constantly running, thinking, and looking to invent new ways of investing in the lives of people to make this world a better place. It's through this drive that I helped to co-found and connected with Samaritan's Feet to become the Lead YAP Coordinator.
