‘Gap Year’ was never part of my vocabulary in regards to my future. I had been accepted to college, found a roommate, registered my classes, and was ready without a doubt in my mind. But, I found that as much as I had dreamed of going to college directly after high school, there was something that I felt was off about what I had planned for myself. Not too long after, I found out about Link Year from one of my longest friends. Without any desire to change my plans, I had an immediate assurance about Link Year being what God was directing me towards for my 2017-18 school year. Nothing about Link Year was what I dreamed of or desired. But the way that God has worked through this time, the people, and places that Link Year has brought into my life has been exactly what I needed without knowing so until living it.
