Hi, my name is Anna. I love working with the Youth of our Church and supporting and encouraging them to grow in their relationship with God. I get super excited about seeing young people take their faith seriously and boldly sharing it with others. When I am not at Youth Group or reading the bible with others, I enjoy playing netball, riding my motorbike and spending time with my friends and family.
