"I grew up in Morris County, NJ, and it is because of this that I chose this major. As a high school student, I witnessed drug dealing as well as saw friends slowly lose who they were because of addictions. It was at that point that I decided I wanted to make a change in the world and give people the chance to have a good life. In my mind, that meant becoming a K9 officer so that I could bust people for drugs and hopefully “scare them straight”. Since being a student here at Messiah College, I have had amazing professors in my major.
