Meet the team!

Xin chào! My name is Christine! I am a born-and-raised Washingtonian, but you wouldn’t know it based on my love to travel, and especially my love for Tennessee (GO VOLS!) I am a junior at SPU, studying physics and military science. I am in Air Force ROTC at the University of Washington, and I absolutely love it. My dream was to be a pilot, but God has other plans for me and I will be entering the Air Operations field. I don’t plan on making a career out of the Air Force, and when I am out I plan on becoming a middle school science teacher.

College has been a great time for me; it has been an amazing journey of triumph and trials. Being selected for this SPRINT trip has definitely changed my life, and we haven’t even left the country yet! I know God is doing amazing things in my life, and the lives of my lovely teammates through this journey, and I can’t wait to see what comes of this amazing opportunity to work in Vietnam.

If I had to describe myself in three words, it would definitely be energetic, adventurous, and smiley! I have learned that life is so much more fun with a good attitude and a willingness to try something new or different. That being said, I am actually really nervous about eating food in Vietnam! Yes, I am adventurous, but I DON’T like seafood… I’ll try almost anything once or twice, but I might have a difficult time eating while we’re in country 😉

I am so excited and so ready for this trip, and embracing this amazing opportunity through SPU, SPRINT, and Fisher’s Superkids English Center. I know God has great plans for our team, and we thank you so much for supporting us with your thoughts and prayers!

Meet the team!

Xin chào! Tên tôi là (Hi! My name is) Charlotte. I am from Bellevue, Washington, but consider myself a Seattlite now. I am currently a junior studying interior design and merchandising at SPU. If I had to describe myself in three words they would be: passionate, creative, and chocoholic! I have wanted to be involved in SPRINT for a while, and I am incredibly thankful that this summer God has provided me with the opportunity to go to Vietnam. I am looking forward to forming relationships with a part of God’s creation that I would normally get to be with. I am most nervous about the language barrier, but I am also excited to spend time with the kids at Fisher’s Superkids English Center and practice my Vietnamese! Cảm ơn (Thank you) for taking the time to read about our team, and we would love your prayers for preparation and for our stay in Vietnam.Image
