Senior psychology major from St. Claire Shores, Michigan

“All I know is that I want to be in an inner city somewhere, serving and loving people unconditionally. Either I’m going to do that by becoming a licensed counselor or I’m going to go into full-time ministry. I have a passion for women and children, and I would love to start a non-profit one day to help orphaned children or broken women.” The people of Detroit, in particular, have a special place in Melissa’s heart. “Spending spring break in the city, just serving people during Campus Ministry’s Urban Plunge, was an incredible experience.”
