Thank you David Bonderman!

Because of Mr. Bonderman's generosity, I have been given the opportunity to travel the world and learn about culture. As a Bonderman Travel Fellow I plan on traveling through Western and Eastern Europe, East Africa, Northern India and Southeast Asia. I am excited to experience new and amazing things that will better enable me to empower and inspire the next generation of young students.

I attended a church led by a pastor who is currently involved with a homosexual partner.

It was definitely different than anything I've experienced before, but who am I to judge? Honestly, I can't claim whether its right or wrong. Luckily, it isn't my responsibility. My goal is to live up to the plans God has for me...and thats hard enough as it is.
