Meet the Students – Patrick
Hey everyone! The moment we have all been waiting for has arrived…..the first edition of our “Meet the Students” blog series! This gives you a better opportunity of knowing each individual student a bit deeper than just seeing their picture on our Facebook page. Each of our students is incredibly unique and brings something different to our team.
This week I am thrilled to introduce Patrick to you!

Underneath that however he is also a very thoughtful and passionate person and we are excited to see where God will bring him this year.
