Gap Year 2020/21

Thank you for reading about my gap year. I am excited about the year ahead. I decided to do a gap year with SU Scotland because I am currently exploring a call to either mission work or ministry. Doing this gap year will help to equip me for the future by pushing me out of my comfort zone and giving me new experiences, which will help me grow in my faith.

I look forward to meeting new people and gaining new experiences, as well as being able to use my skills to serve God’s Kingdom. I am also really looking forward to the two week mission trip to Ukraine, where it will be interesting to see the gospel at work in a different culture. I hope that throughout the gap year I can develop my confidence in new and unfamiliar situations, and that my faith will develop more as God leads me through this gap year.

In my spare time I like to read my Bible and other Christian books. I also like to play games and do various activities with friends as well as playing tennis.

I have opted for the gap:comms placement, and will be based in SU’s Glasgow office. This means I will be supervised by Gillian, head of the Communications and Marketing team. This is a new placement for SU and will involve work in design, website content, social media, video editing, event support, as well as some IT support as well. On top of this I will also be helping at one SU lunch club in a school, a few other Scotland wide SU events and camps and missions during the holidays.
