It's like a home I had never been to. Maybe I'm discovering that I truly am a nomad at heart. I'm 25 years old, been in college since I was 18, never owned a car, and lived in five different places in five years. My heart is always pulling me to the next destination, but they never quite feel foreign - they feel like home. Idaho, Florida, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Zhenjiang. I've left a piece of my heart in each of those places, and they've each left a significant mark on me. They have shaped my soul immensely.
Sheffield came into my life slowly at first, then all at once - falling into place. The universe called me there line-upon-line, and discovering why has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. I stumbled upon the International Social Change & Policy programme while I was meticulously searching nearly every university in the U.K. for a program that resonated with what I'd been studying. I was passionate about policy impact, and this new postgraduate program at the University of Sheffield reached out and grabbed me from the moment that I set eyes on it.
Nearly every waking thought since the Spring of 2016 has been centered on planning and preparing for life in Sheffield. Doors have flown open, opportunities have been presented, and multiple experiences have prepared me. Watching God's hand work miracles and open doors has left me in awe of His loving care. I can't wait to continue discovering why He's led me back to Sheffield.
