Hanna is from Shelby, NC, and a sophomore at Columbia International University studying Intercultural Studies. She visited the South America Mission office during her freshman year in a class with professor Dr. David Cashin, a member of SAM’s Board of Directors. She has participated in a variety of ministries, worship, tutoring, VBS, and teaching ESL.
Hanna will be embarking on her first overseas mission trip this summer as part of the Peru Summer Team. During these six weeks, she will get to experience the various cultures, landscapes, and cuisine of Peru while also experiencing the various SAM ministries. Through this adventure, she hopes to learn more about missions and consider her future involvement in missions.
