Interview: Marina Hanna on Humans of Tyndale
“I was quite depressed when I first got back. In the last two months or so I’ve had to go through this intense emotional journey which I wasn’t really expecting because it’s quarantine. I’m not being physically affected and I’m in a safe environment, but I had to kind of release my expectations of what I wanted the last semester to be especially because it’s senior year. All those expectations that had been built up, honestly for a number of years, about that final semester of college I had to really release. I was very introspective for a couple of weeks about the bigger picture, about why I was having such a difficult time in this situation and what it was about that final year and experience that I was clinging on to so hard. I think it's been strange because this has been a disease, a pandemic, but I have had to become so much more introspective. I feel like I am coming out the other side more self-aware just because I had such a strange emotional response to something I don’t really think I should have had an emotional response to. I’m in a place now where I have been thinking a lot about the bigger picture, of what I value in life.
Tyndale for me has been such a tool of God to transform my life, my faith, my relationship with God, and my confidence. God used Tyndale to change me. I would never want to make it seem like it is a magical place where your life gets fixed, but that's what it was for me. I encourage you guys to keep putting heart and soul into the atmosphere that Tyndale has. The place has the potential to be used by God to change lives.” #quarantinestories
