Blog: Getting to Know Kegan Yoder

Earlier this month, we welcomed another intern: Kegan Yoder, from Ohio (pictured in the middle).  He has already been an asset to the work here, and we’re grateful God led him to Aim Right!
 

Here’s a little Q & A with Kegan:

  • Where you grew up: On a farm in Plain City, Ohio
  • Why you decided to become an intern: I wanted to do a gap year after college in a setting I haven’t been in, and I felt Aim Right was a good fit [Kegan recently graduated from EMU].
  • Countries you’ve visited: Costa Rica, Haiti, Peru, Morocco, Ethiopia, Kenya, England, Turkey, Bulgaria, Greece, Austria, Hungary [and he gets to add Mexico as of this coming Saturday!]
  • Person you admire: Lecrae.  He’s very outspoken about his faith and is a good example to people who listen to his music.
  • If money wasn’t an issue, you’d be driving a: BMW i8
  • Today’s children and youth are searching for: a sense of “belonging,” both in the local community and broader society.
  • Dream job: Own my own business.
  • Hobbies and interests: Reading and outdoor stuff (sports, hiking, etc.).
  • For breakfast this morning, you ate: gummy bears and a chocolate chip cookie.
  • You’d be excited to receive a gift card to: Target.
  • Do you have any nicknames? I don’t, but the kids here are working on it.
  • Most unusual thing you’ve seen since coming to Phoenix: A house down the street has a 15-foot spider in the front yard.
  • What motivates you to serve Christ with your life? I feel like I’ve been blessed with opportunities and resources and feel like it’s my responsibility to use them for God.

Note: Interns love getting mail! If you know Kegan or one of our other interns (Branden and Aleisha), you can encourage them by sending a card, letter, or a gift card and letting them know you are praying for them.
