Fried Rice

Fried Rice has been a camper ever since she was a sunshine camper and is now so ecstatic to be part of the CT staff for four years now. Fried Rice graduated from Arlington High School and is going to be a freshman at Texas Christian University in the fall of 2017, and will be studying music and pre-med. Camp Thurman is truly her home away from home and she loves to spend as much time of her summer at CT as possible. CT has truly shaped her spiritual life and has brought her closer to Jesus every single year that she has been part of the CT staff which is all part of God’s plans! God has been calling Fried Rice to be a leader in her life and to share her testimony with other people, and that is why Fried Rice has worked Camp Thurman every year: in order to spread God’s word to as many people as she can. Camp Thurman is a place that she will always be able to call home, no matter how far God’s plans take her around the world. Fried Rice is so excited for this summer and what it has to offer and cannot wait to see what God has in store for Camp Thurman as a whole.
