Amy Medford, President

medfad14@wfu.edu


I'm a senior from Canton, NC (30 minutes outside of Asheville, NC). I plan on pursuing a career in medicine after my time here at Wake. My major is physics with a minor in film and media studies. I'm super nerdy and obsessed with House, M.D. and The Office. My hobbies include music, film, and hanging out in the BSU lounge. I am also a member of the Wake Forest Concert Choir. Most importantly, I love Jesus and am so grateful for the life He has given me! 

BSU is one of the places where I feel most at home on campus. We are like a weird, but loving family, and we strive to make everyone feel welcome. Come and join us on Tuesdays nights for Horizons! I'm excited to see what God has in store for this school year!

 



Vicky Wang, Summer Missions Coordinator

wangr14@wfu.edu



Hello, I'm Vicky. I am an international student from Taiwan and is currently a senior. My major is chemistry with concentration in biochemistry and a minor in biology. 
       Traveling to the US is hard when you're alone, but sometimes it is even harder when you are one of the few Taiwanese students on campus. The problem of fitting in became worse because of my introverted personality. I was extremely lucky to know BSU and able to become a member. I was opened up to many opportunities in my spring break missionary trips. After traveling 7,619 miles, I finally found a new haven that can accept my identity, culture, and even difference in religious view. I am excited to be this year's Summer Missions Coordinator and hopefully my introduction can encourage more students to find BSU as a safe space to express their ideas.

Default bio for council members who don't write a bio:

The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy. My mother was a fifteen year old French llama seller named Chloe who had  webbed feet. My father would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons with Ludite ex-patriots who taught me to disdain writing my own bio for websites.  In the spring we'd make meat helmets, which has served me well in my complete domination of Kaitlin Mundy in every sport we've ever played. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really



Natalie Bare, Fellowship Coordinator

barenj14@wfu.edu
Hi, I'm Natalie, and I am a senior from Asheville, North Carolina. I am a sociology major with a concentration in criminology. My hobbies include long-boarding, playing basketball, taking selfies with Kim's phone, and listening to music. I love intramural sports here at Wake and hope to lead BSU scoreless snowflakes to victory this year!! BSU is my home away from home, and I am so happy to be part of council this year. We accept you just as you are. BSU is the most supportive, loving group here. Come visit!!




Kara Towery, Pastoral Care Coordinator

toweke16@wfu.edu

Hey I'm Kara and I am a sophomore from Morganton, North Carolina!  I am an Anthropology major and I hope to pursue a career in medicine after undergrad.  Here at Wake, I am on the cheerleading team and I enjoy hiking, dancing, hanging out in the BSU lounge, or spending time with my family in my free time.   Maya Angelou once said, "The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned".  Since coming to Wake, I have felt most at home at BSU. BSU offers a welcoming and loving atmosphere, which I felt since I came to the first Horizons meeting.  I look forward to serving as the Pastoral Care Coordinator the rest of the year and hopefully meeting some of you through Horizons, bible studies, or Sacred Cow.

I am a Sophomore from Statesville, NC. History is my intended major and I hope to pursue a career in the legal field one day. This is my second year on BSU and as Coordinator my job is to collaborate with other organizations on campus. 


When I have free time, I enjoy golfing, playing basketball, and writing short stories. I went to Cuba last year with BSU and feel that the organization has had a profound impact upon my life. I'd invite all interested students to Horizons on Tuesday nights at 6!
