Life Story:

I come from a very … unique background. I am a transgender bisexual man who grew up in the LCMS church. It’s hard to give my life story when my life has just begun. I found my place here at Zion in 10th grade thanks to Lewis. I thank all of you for accepting me and my identity.

Next Year Plans:

Exciting stuff really. I am going to AMDA College of the Performing Arts in Los Angeles, California to pursue my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performing Arts. My fall semester starts in October 🙂

Go to Bible Verse:

My personal favorites are all of Psalm 23 and Revelations 21:4.

One Thing I Would Tell My Younger Self:

“Chin up, God is up there and he is taking care of you.”

Favorite Youth Group Memory:

Anything we did with art 🙂

One Thing I Love About Myself:

My creativity and my ability to adapt to change.

What Does Having a Strong Faith Mean To You?:

Being aware that whatever anyone says, no one can break or define my relationship with God.

 Am I now seeking human approval or God’s approval? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still pleasing people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
(Galatians 1:10)

Favorite God Moment:

Being comforted by the Bible. and God always being present in my times of grief and sadness.
