Hello, my name is Jade Guccione and I am psychology student at the University of Michigan - Flint! I'm a senior and I graduate with my Bachelor's of Science degree in May 2015! My goal is to earn my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and Art Therapy and work with at-risk children.
Ever since I can remember I've always had a passion of caring for and improving the well-being of others. And, for years I have dreamed about going a missions trip and now here I am fundraising to go to Honduras in July. I am so excited thinking about the amazing things that will happen through Christ on this missions trip <3
A little bit more about me, I consider myself to be an optimist and I believe that having a positive attitude throughout life's journey is very important. When I'm not at class or studying, I intern at the Ennis Center for Children, a non-profit foster care agency in Flint. I am involved in Fostering Creativity, a therapeutic-arts program at the Ennis Center and I love working with the children there. It's amazing to me to see how much of an impact providing a safe, caring, supportive environment can make.
A couple of my favorite Bible verses:
- Phillippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
- Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Also, one interesting thing to know about me is that I am Hispanic and can speak Spanish. My Spanish is rusty, but I plan on working on it some more so I can be of better help translating in Honduras :)
Note** Almost 3 years ago, I was blessed enough to marry my high school sweetheart, Robert, a man who has also expressed a strong desire for giving back. Our 3rd year wedding anniversary is July of 2015 and we are hoping to both be able to go on the Honduras Hope Trip in 2015.
Blessings to you,
