I knew IMS was a good school that I wanted to attend. But what made me sure of my decision was when I came to the visit days. I saw IMS wasn’t just another school. It’s a place where I am praised for being who I am. It’s a place where I am encouraged to ask questions without reluctance. It’s a place where I am not only accompanied when singing praises to the Creator, but also when I must go through the valley of the shadow of death. It’s a place describable with only one word – home.

I think I’ve been challenged in many ways while at IMS, and not only in difficult academic subjects. If there is something I know to be true, it is that my faith has grown significantly while at IMS. From challenges questioning my perspective to theological discussions with peers, to witnessing an entire community come together to support each other in times of need. These all have shaped and molded me into who I am today.
