Why I’m interning at LSSND: After working hand-in-hand with Imagine Thriving for youth and young adult mental-health advocacy and suicide prevention in North Dakota, I knew LSS and social ministry were where I belonged.

Goals for this internship: As an Industrial & Management Engineer, my fields of focus are broad. I am hoping this internship allows me the opportunity to really experience social ministry and the variety of service applications that are applicable.

Life Goals: My greatest aspiration in life is to make a positive impact on the lives of each and every individual I am fortunate to cross paths with. My passion for mental health and suicide prevention leaves me with goals large enough for a lifetime.
