Karina Arnold '15
"Since graduating from Houston Christian, I have expanded my horizons, literally and figuratively. Since venturing with Dr. Livingston through multiple Globe Trek trips, I caught the travel bug. I joined multiple diversity and Spanish Clubs at OU and continue to travel around the world. I have volunteered in Cambodia with Chandler Dugan '12. We scuba dived and planted coral reef pods to promote marine growth. I am about to spend 6 months studying and traveling through Argentina and Patagonia. Traveling has been the best learning experience and pushes me past my comfort zone. I feel most at home with a backpack in a foreign country, while trying new foods and meeting new people. Houston Christian also introduced me to peers who I look forward to catching up with every time I'm back in Houston. Faculty, staff and my old classmates are always willing to offer support or hang out, a welcoming characteristic I know will last as the years pass. Thank you, HC for my memorable high school experience."
