  • My Story

    As a child, I always wanted to attend church. Through God’s blessing, I came to the US for my graduate degree in English Literature at Penn State. As a strong believer in God, I always wanted to teach at a Christian higher education. Right before I moved to Greenville, South Carolina, I came across what would become my future home: North Greenville. Throughout my journey, I learned to understand how important it is to have faith in God’s unwavering love and grace. Therefore, I learned to embrace God’s presence in my life. I consider it a great blessing to have an opportunity to shape the lives of the students that will make up the future generation. Through my teaching, I work to build an authentic Christ-centered community that displays virtues of grace and love and understanding of inherent human values.
