I was born into a Christian family and was homeschooled up through high school. Through my high school years, I was submerged in my homeschool community and attended many homeschool co-ops like Friday Addition. I loved being homeschooled, and even now that I am in college the community is very important to me. Though I am currently attending Grand Rapids Community College with the hopes of receiving an associates in science by the end of this coming school year, I hope to transfer to Grand Valley State University in the following fall to pursue a degree in either theoretical math research or in teaching math and science. My passion has always been to help people understand the fascinating world that is mathematics, and I hope to one day make a career out of showing people how to better understand it.
