The moment the marked stepping into my calling was at Victory Outreach Youth Convention in 2012. I came from a family the wasn't very open with their emotions so when I came to this event where everyone was loving and kind it shifted my perspective. I have a choice and to allow myself to love freely and recklessly. I wanted to have that relationship with God to where no matter what situation I was in I was walking in love. After that I was always extremely involved in youth ministry. I just want to spend the rest of my life loving on people.
