I first fell in love with King’s...
when I (very begrudgingly) came to an Inviso in the Spring of 2019. I was visiting NYC for the first time ever as a graduation / birthday present, and somehow my mom convinced me to visit TKC – she loved it, but I wasn’t as enthusiastic about the idea. I had my sights set on a completely different school at that time.
The weeks leading up to making my final college decision were so hard for me. The pressure of choosing the place I was going to spend the next four years of my life weighed heavily on my shoulders. I turned to prayer. I petitioned God boldly and specifically, asking Him to open the doors He wanted me to walk through and seal shut the ones He didn’t. I knew it would be hard – submitting my own desires to God and accepting the future that He was pointing me toward – but He delivered, just as He always does.
To be completely honest, I never thought my college education would look the way it does now, but I am so incredibly thankful for the opportunities I’ve had here at this school, and in this city. It has, without a doubt, been a great challenge, but I think that’s what also has made it so incredibly special and rewarding.
As I was reflecting on my time here at King’s, struggling with what to include in this letter, one thing in particular stood out to me – I’ve come to recognize that what truly makes our institution so great is its people. The students at King’s are undoubtedly the best part about this school, and it’s the relationships that I’ve formed here that I will continue to carry with me the rest of my life.
As we walk through this season of feeling unsettled and uncertain, I again turn to prayer. I boldly and specifically petition God that He carry out His will with this school, no matter what that may look like. I rest my hope in the fact that He will deliver… After all, He always does.
With love,
