As most of you all probably know, on the 21st of April 2017, I was accepted to Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM) and that I’ll be moving to California in August.

This move is huge for me and everyone around me. A couple of people have asked me the same questions over and over again, and instead of having to repeatmyself numerous times, I thought I’d do a FAQ to help all my friends and family understand what’s actually taking place in my life and make it very clear than no, I am not going to Hogwarts. (I’ve been asked this twice)

When did you get accepted?

April 21st, 2017. I made no secret about wanting to and going to attend Bethel because I knew God called me two years ago, to go this year. So I wanted to share it with everyone, whether they supported me or not. I had some issues with health that made me question whether I should apply, but everything has been overcome and I’m as healthy as can be.

When do you leave?

I’ll be in Redding on the 5th of August

When does school start and until when?
31st of August 2017 until 8th May, 2018

Will you be travelling by yourself?

Unfortuantely, yes. I’ll be doing everything by myself. Flying alone for the very first time. Navigating foreign airports. Getting to Redding then moving into my shared apartment. And familiarizing myself with Redding for the the next month. It’s quite daunting. The first time moving out of the house (Sort of, I’ve been living out of a suitcase for the past four months) and I’ll be moving to another continent. Scary.

How else can I help?

Please just keep praying for me. I’ve been receiving intense attacks on my emotional state, with stress and anxiety piling up drastically. So all I can ask for is prayer. And lots of it.

Will you still be involved in writing and photography?

Definitely without a doubt. Since I can’t work, I’ll be focusing on this a lot, building experience and furthering my knowledge.
