My name is Callie Huus and I am a senior at CSBSJU with a double major in Theology and Political science and a minor in Hispanic Studies. I am excited to be working as the YTM student worker because of the impact that YTM has had on my life. Because of YTM, I am here studying Theology and could not be happier. YTM was where I discovered my deep love for questions and learning about something bigger than myself. Working for YTM has given me in an inside perspective into the work and love that goes into this program. It has been inspiring to be working in the School of Theology where there is a beautiful spiritual presence around. This is truly a sacred place and I cannot wait for the future of YTM.
