“She is THE hardest worker. Her drive is legendary – I cannot keep up! She is determined to make a difference and going to school has allowed her to lay the foundation for her “service” in a different way. She is dedicated to mission and people. She will work very hard, produce is a meaningful way, and make sure she teaches along the way.”
