Bishop Chatard taught me the importance of being active in your faith and to not hide it. I have an active role to play in the world. I am not going to wait for change, instead, I will be the change.
I'm going to be an engineer in a globally connected world. My faith will be challenged by opposing beliefs and my mind will be challenged intellectually as I go on to college. BCHS has given me tools to protect my faith and the intellect to do whatever I set my mind to.
