Jonathan Harding My Why

Intercultural Studies

God put international mission in my heart. He also showed me that the nations are here. There are people here that I can invest in, and they can invest in me. I went from thinking I was not going to need college, to God showing me that University of Mobile is a place of true discipleship and where I need to be, and I couldn’t be more thankful. I did the World Race before coming to college, and God kept showing me through that experience that Intercultural Studies is what I needed to major in. I want to tell others about Jesus, and I found that University of Mobile is the best place for me to learn this. UM is great because I am able to mingle with the international students every day and experience new cultures and work with them right here.
