What is your favorite memory of your time at LSTC?

It is indisputable that I have many fond memories at LSTC. My favorite has to be my wedding in our old school building, surrounded by faculty, staff, and friends.

What was the most meaningful class you took?

The most meaningful class I took was #BlackLivesMatter: Faith, Intersectionality, and Democracy taught by Dr. Linda E Thomas.

How did you feel supported during your seminary journey? Were you the recipient of any major scholarships? What communities or people uplifted you during your studies?

As an international student from Myanmar, a country under a military coup regime, I required more help and support than most. Throughout my life’s ups and downs, God has always been there for me, often working through the wonderful people at LSTC.

Dr. Linda E Thomas, my advisor, played a crucial role in my seminary journey. My family friends—Dr. May May Latt, Kyi Kyi Latt, Cho Cho Win, and Su Mo Mo Win—along with my husband, Rev. Rajeev M Geddam, and my family, were pivotal in uplifting me during my studies.

What are your post-graduation plans?

Completing this Th.M. degree marks the halfway point of my Ph.D. study journey. I continue my Ph.D. here at LSTC.

How did LSTC shape you as a future leader of the public church?

LSTC has opened my eyes to the importance of inclusivity and the use of inclusive language, reflecting God’s boundless love for everyone. It has taught me that we are all created beautifully and fearfully in the image of God, preparing me to lead with inclusivity and compassion in the public church.
