Hi, I'm Bekah.
Originally from Georgia, I graduated in 2019 with a B.F.A. emphasizing Graphic Design from the University of Georgia. Creativity has always been such a significant part of me, from a small Crayola-crazed toddler to a grown designer given a client brief. While the world whirls around me, I take great faith in re-centering myself around the small, little ways that great love can show. Often inspired by the saints, I hope to bring even more light to this life through community, empathy, laughter, and joy. This may include, but not be limited to, impromptu art projects, new evangelization through design, imaginative analogies, and a desire to meet others where they are at. To quote my near and dear sister, St. Therese of Lisieux, “My vocation is love.”
Currently, I am the Communications Associate for Franciscan Mission Service in Washington, D.C. As a part of this year of service, I have learned so much more than I can even possibly try to describe. In this spirit of contemplation, I will pose some concepts that I have known and grown with well over the past 8 months:
Intentionality. Authenticity. Community. Presence. Accompaniment. People over Product. Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam.
Some of my favorite things:
mindfulness walks, gingko leaves, casual tea time, warm breezes, cloud-gazing, the Pantone-like wonderland that are autumnal leaves, the Partridge Family, Claude deBussey, Phineas and Ferb, dry humor, empathy, lifelong learning, and the continuous resiliency of humanity to never stop growing
