Favorite Bible Verse and why: Isaiah 54:17 (KJV) – “No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” According to this verse, no matter what enemies that will rise up against the followers of Christ, their plans will stand no chance against the power of the Lord. Although we probably won’t be faced with a physical army like back then, our enemies can be anything that causes us trouble today such as grudges, struggles, and simple issues. For me, these words have been a source of inspiration through many trials in life as they remind me that it does not matter what obstacles be before me, for God is on my side.

Favorite Biblical Hero and why: Out of all the amazing men and women in the Bible, the one I consider my personal favorite would be Job. If there is one thing you could say about this man, it’s that he must have been crazy or the closest thing to the embodiment of patience. Despite his immense personal losses, backstabbing friends and family, and with no hope in sight, Job remained faithful to God. What do you know? It all worked out in the end. Everything he lost was replaced and better than before. His life exemplifies a level of total faith, trust, and longsuffering that I one day hope to achieve.

Favorite Christian band/music and why: Ever since I was a child, the majority of music I was exposed to were traditional hymns that were either sung at my church or on theradio. Since then, I have come to enjoy this genre of music for their genius chord structure. Even after a century in some cases; they still proclaim the glory of God. Outside of Christian music, I enjoy listening to classical music from the great composers of the past and electronic music, especially by Daft Punk.

Hobbies: Playing the piano, drawing, sports, general research, and pondering the mysteries of life.

Favorite Movie(s): To be honest, I don’t really have a favorite movie rather, a set of genres that include action, adventure and science fiction.

Favorite foods: Chicken- All types, it doesn’t matter. Just give it to me!

Favorite school subject and why: I love sciences. The reason why I prefer this are of studies over all the other subjects is due to two reasons. First, so many of the great things that humanity has discovered have come from the application of science and in return, the sciences have expanded informational depth. Also, in these classes you can actually do something hands on for a change, rather than writing a paper or listening to endless rambles.
