I was born in Los Angeles, CA in 1988 and I moved to the DMV at the age of 3. Throughout my teenage years I struggled with depression and feelings of inadequacy. I experimented with weed and alcohol and sought love and approval in all the wrong places. I often contemplated suicide and behaved recklessly when things didn’t go my way. It wasn’t until my encounter with Jesus at the age of 18 that my whole life changed. I no longer live for the temporary pleasures of this world but instead I live to bring glory to the God who saved me. I’m by no means perfect but I trust in a perfect God who is directing my steps.
