Isabel graduated from Messiah in 2020 with a double major in English, concentrating in Literature, and Biblical and Religious Studies. She is now studying at Princeton University, working towards a Master of Divinity degree. She always felt led to study theology, but when she came to Messiah she also felt led to study English as well. Her dream is to one day become a professor, imparting and empowering a wealth of theological imagination in future learners.
Of her time at Messiah, Isabel says that "Messiah prepared me for grad school in a number of ways. Apart from the discipline of reading and writing, Messiah also developed my sense of compassion and critical thinking. It enhanced my ability to imagine, relate, and apply abstract ideas to the raw human experience. The English program taught me to value language in a way that revolutionized my own reading of scripture and other literary works."
