Track/Cheerleading • San Diego State University

“When I was in the eighth grade I realized that Christianity is not just a religion but also a relationship with God and that He wants to be in every part of my life. I hope I share God’s love through every facet of my life, including athletics. I don’t know exactly what that will look like yet. I trust God with my life. I believe He gave me this passion and I am open to use it for His glory in every way life presents.

“My life has been full of “you can’t” and “you shouldn’t” admonitions. “You can’t drive. You can’t be a cheerleader. You shouldn’t run track…” my doctors have said. Being a responsible citizen requires the evaluation of the consequences of personal decisions, so I don’t drive—yet. After weighing the risks of running track and cheering though, I not only took up these passions, but also excelled.

“My unique life experiences challenge me in ways that test my resolve on a daily basis. Because of some of the difficult choices I have had to make, I remain confident that even in situations when others choose to veer off the path God has chosen, I will remain steadfast.”

Basketball • Guilford College

“I would like to work in the Exercise & Sport Science field where I can help people with their exercise and life management goals. This will allow me to develop relationships with people which will provide opportunities to share my faith.

“[As a college basketball player, I have been able to conduct bible studies for my teammates.] To me those seeds that were planted are more precious and amazing than winning the (conference) championship.”

One of Amber’s scholarship application references wrote about her…”As a student and athlete she makes no distinction in these areas of her life when it comes to shining the light of Christ. Amber is one of those rare people who live out their faith fearlessly and without apology.”

Soccer • Columbia International University

“I have two passions in life: soccer and kids. I hope, in the future, to travel overseas and use the gift of soccer and combine it with missions as a way to encounter, and share with kids who normally wouldn’t give a missionary chance. I feel very strongly that God is calling me into the mission field and use soccer as a gateway to reach many different people. I am excited to see what God has in store for me in the future.

“My first taste of missions was spring break of my eight grade year, 2008. I was really nervous because I had never done a mission trip before. One night we went into the city to so some ministry and I really connected with the kids there. It was natural. It was here that I realized I had a heart to share the love of Jesus.
I intend to pursue soccer in college as not only a way to minister to my own team, but also to the opposing team. I try to share who Christ is through my everyday actions. I want my life to be an example.”

Track • Biola University

“I joined cross country as a freshman, unaware that I would become the top runner on the team that year. As I continued to grow in my athletic abilities, I realized that running was my God-given gift and chose to use it for His glory. Through my experience in cross country and track, He has humbled me and taught me to rely on His strength alone. Through the relationships I form with my teammates, opportunities abound for me to share the love of Christ. I lead my teammates in prayer before races and often write them pre-race encouragement notes with scripture. Stepping out of my comfort zone and inviting teammates to weekly bible study has resulted in several of them committing their lives to Christ.

“Whatever my level of success as a college athlete, I will continue to do my best to display God’s love through my words and actions, both on and off the athletic field.”

Graphic Arts • Otis College of Art & Design

“I chose art as my way of expressing my faith because it is through this that God has shown His grace and His love, even when one thinks it is impossible. As with many aspiring artists, my interest in creative pursuits is lifelong, and as the daughter of a pastor, my early lens was heavily leaned towards art in Christianity.

“No matter how much I liked art however, my family’s financial situation told me pursuing a career in art was foolish. Being an artist might have been a possibility when I lived in South Korea. In the U.S. however, [in such an unstable financial life] how could I think I could afford art school? ….Nevertheless, God gave people the ability to influence others by their creativity. We can make people laugh or bring them to tears, make them depressed or give them hope, inspire them or persuade them into action. Other artists brought such reactions in me and left lasting imprints. I would like to be the person who can do what others have done for me; but, within the boundaries of my faith.

“My name, Ha Young, is taken from the Korean words, ‘Ha-na-nim’ and ‘Young-Kwang’. ‘Ha-na-nim’ means ‘God’, and ‘Young-Kwang’ means ‘glory’. My parents named me thus so I would become someone who brings glory to God. It is my deepest desire to be able to do so with the artistic gift God gave to me.”
