Stories of Giving

Bekah Miller '18

“I was all set to go to Yale to study pre-med and to become a doctor, but I felt like God was telling me a different path — a path that wasn’t necessarily going to be what the world wanted me to do … it more or less came down to the decision of whether I wanted to follow the world or whether I wanted to follow Christ. I ultimately chose Christ.”
