I want to learn to practice an active Catholicism and develop a dynamic faith and resolute conscience strengthened by a broader world view. I want to have an experience that will influence the way I prioritize my thoughts and actions throughout my adult life. I was drawn to the Salesian Lay Missioners because I have felt a unique connection with Saint John Bosco since I was very young; he was my confirmation saint. Don Bosco inspired me to learn to juggle, unicycle, and master the craft of twisting balloons, in hopes that I might use these talents in the same way he did. I love children and I want to be a positive influence in their lives.
