Fact: I am an aspiring Christian contemporary composer. Music is my passion, and nothing gives me more pleasure than to perform my music for people in order to encourage them.

I chose to come to Belhaven because... of my older sister's influence. She attended and graduated from Belhaven, so as one can imagine, she loved it here. All four years she was at Belhaven, she sang its praises; then I decided to look into it myself. It is because of her that I decided to come here.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... the relationship I've developed with my boyfriend. He is a fantastic Christian guy who is serious about his faith and his education. I would have never met him if it hadn't been for this university.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I will be equipped to begin looking for work as a counselor somewhere, be it in a school, university, church, etc. Furthermore, a degree in psychology will also improve my life overall because I will know how to better relate and understand people.
