I experienced Breakthrough I feel like in a really young season of my life.
I was basically just graduated from high school, and I kind of like every kid who
graduates from high school, I didn't know what was coming next. I had just come out of a season of
homelessness, and I was going in and out of that a lot, and my family - all outside the country, so
My mom, she had - she was praying for me, and she was supporting me and
all that, but I felt really alone because I didn't know what came next. And homelessness was something
that was so like familiar. Living out of my car, believing that god was going to provide some
kind of breakthrough, but not actually knowing or seeing it. And so I remember somebody asked
me, what do you want to do next, like you're so young. What do you want to do next? And I said I
really want to go to college, and I want to study and I want to help people. I want to be a therapist.
I want to do everything I can to help broken families, especially kids, who are feeling lost and
alone to be able to find breakthrough, but I don't know how I'm going to pay for school because I
don't have any money. So I remember I just bought a Greyhound bus ticket, and I believed that God was
going to just see me through it. And so I got that bus ticket. Got on it. Went all the way to Virginia.
I got off, and I was like okay, here we go. Like God, you're gonna do something. And so I took out loans
that first year and towards the end of that year, I just thought to myself there's no way I can keep
doing this. I, like, this is way too difficult. I worked a couple jobs while going to school
And basically, the opportunity came up for me to try out for the worship team at my college
campus, and didn't know what would come of it. I tried out, made it to the final interview,
and when they were talking to me, they said, well we want to offer you a full-time scholarship,
and we want - we'll actually pay you to be here and all this stuff that I got so incredibly
overwhelmed and I actually got to see my way through school and like all of it was fully
provided for and I believe like just stepping out in faith and being like I know I'm homeless,
I know I've got nothing, but God you're going to provide. I think that's what made all the difference.
