For senior Robin Gould, writing has always been her passion. “I know that writing is my passion and something I believe God has gifted me to share.” Three months ago, the idea of creating a student-led webpage came into her mind. She was coming home from volleyball regionals when one of her teammates said, “I wish we knew more about what happens at Grace.” This stirred a vision in her mind.
Gould is majoring in Professional Writing with a minor in English. She decided that she needed to use what she has been learning and turn it into something bigger than just school work.
“I wanted to start up a student-led webpage that showed Grace through our eyes. I was nervous that nobody would be interested in covering events, interviewing people, and writing in general. I was nervous to even ask others to join me because it was going to be a big project to start up. Fortunately, I was very wrong.”
The student-led webpage is called The Vision because it is what students see. The statement is simple, “We believe that student voices need to be heard.” The Vision team wants to write what they see and feel about campus and the community surrounding it. Gould only hopes that the articles shared resembles a passion for writing, creativity, and gives people a well-rounded view of Grace Christian University and the Wyoming community. As of right now, there are four other core writers: Chris Smith, Andi Bojanhen, Taylor Wahl and Kelsie Knebl. Robin Gould will be the student leader, head editor, and doing some writing of her own.
