Birthday is a second-year counselor who will be working her 6th summer at Camp Thurman. She just completed her freshman year at Baylor (Sic ‘Em Bears!!), where she studies Journalism. She hopes to be on the media/photography/videography side of missions one day, whether that’s working for a church or a missions organization. At Baylor, Birthday is a part of an evangelical ministry called Campus Crusaders for Christ (Cru), which has taught her so much stepping out of her comfort zone to share the Gospel of Jesus.

She attended Camp Thurman as a kid, and her life was deeply impacted by the love of Jesus that shone from her counselors and the staff. It is her goal this summer to make sure that the Gospel is the central part of her camper’s experience, and to show her campers that loving Jesus is beautiful, includes SO MUCH FUN and leads to abundant life!!
