Although I have lived in the Tacoma area with my family for most of my life, I found myself graduating high school in Las Vegas. I started my first year of college as a Lumberjack at Northern Arizona University, studied abroad my sophomore year in England, took a semester off, and eventually found myself here in Pullman. It has been an insane 5 years but this year by the Grace of God, is my last year of college! I intend to graduate in Spring 2018 with my degree in Humanities with an emphasis in Digital Technology & Culture, Fine Arts, and Communication! Go Cougs!
I grew up in a korean-american church and knew of God at a young age. I accepted him into my life in junior high but had a very surface level relationship with Him. I found myself turning to God only when it was convenient for me. I was selfish. Growing up, I did not really know how to have a relationship with anyone which lead to a lot of toxic situations. I was terrified that God would hurt me. I eventually grew tired from running away from him for so long and one thing lead to another, I found myself at 20 praying to God that I wanted to pursue him like He has been pursuing me.
When I came to Resonate, it was totally a God moment. I had been away from the church for so long that when I was accepted into WSU early August, I transferred not knowing how much God would flip my life around. Hearing about Resonate through a co-worker (now I consider as one my friends) I was very hesitant but everything in me was telling me to just go. Service after service and later joining a village, God revealed to me how much bitterness and hurt I have stored in my heart. Ever since I walked through Todd Auditorium I have felt so welcomed into the Resonate family. I have prayed for a Gospel Family for as long as I can remember and I am so overjoyed to know I found that family at Resonate. Giving my all to the Lord was terrifying but He has given me so much Grace and because of him, I am redeemed.
When I applied to be a part of staff, I wanted to be a part of the movement that was a huge influence on me for the reason I am where I am today. The community pushed me to be the best version of me and helped me see what God saw in me. I am currently a part of the Network team working as the Social Media leader here in Pullman! I am so overjoyed about the rad individuals that I get to work and collaborate with.
My hope for Resonate is that people will grow together and challenge one another as a family, knowing God expanding His kingdom together.
