Family members: Astrid – Mom, Jonathan – Dad
Hobbies or past times: I love making music. I started writing my own songs about 5 or so years ago and it has been something I have stuck with ever since. If I don’t make anything I feel trapped, and I use it as a way of therapy.
Core Competency I developed in my time at MRCS: Social Responsibility: MRCS has helped me be a better person in many ways. The school has helped show me what type of responsibility I have to the people around me. This past year has shown me how important building relationships with mentors, friends and family can be and the beautiful things they add to my life.
Biblical Through-line I developed in my time at MRCS: Community-Server: MRCS has taught me how to be a better leader that contributes to the community by spreading love and empathy to the people around me. I haven’t always been a leader, if I’m honest I feel like I’m a terrible leader, but I think that’s what makes me a good leader. I’m able to see my flaws and actively work on being better to better serve my peers.
How my time at MRCS developed my relationship with God and with others: MRCS has been a great place for developing my faith. I am so thankful for Mr Davison for reaching out to me and helping me grow in my faith when I was going through tough times. I felt the closest to God during this time.
A highlight from my time at MRCS: A highlight I have in MRCS was all the time Mr. Davison put into mentoring and helping me grow as a person throughout my middle school years. I’m very thankful for him.
Future plans for after graduation: I plan to travel as soon as we are all able to. I am going to go to Italy and Greece with my father for a week and then travel by myself and see the places I have always dreamed of going to. I plan to create music and be creative. I plan to finally release a project and see where God takes me. I want to do some type of schooling in the field of marketing and business because I want to run my own business and be an entrepreneur like my father.
One thing about MRCS that I want others to know: This is an amazing community and family. Like a family yes, there are lows and highs, but ultimately the good times always outweigh the bad. MRCS has brought me together with so many amazing people and has helped me find who I am with the grounding of Jesus as my saviour. I could not be happier and more blessed than I have been. Thank you for everything, MRCS.
