“I basically felt I'd done all the discernment I could, and in order to continue growing in my work, I needed a graduate degree. I knew that social work is what I wanted to do, but I also realized that my desire for theology and learning about God, learning about my faith, was extremely important. So I started to research programs that had a dual degree. The M.A. program here has a Hispanic Ministry track. That’s my background culturally, and that’s where I see myself serving.”
