X Project - Ohio
Small but mighty, Grace W. carries herself with dignity and strength. She is in tune with the needs of the lost and broken and uses her skill, journalism, to give them a voice.
Grace’s hard work filming and producing short documentaries impacts countless lives and even ministers to those who view her videos. She prides herself on capturing the real honest stories of the world we live in without spin.
After X Project, Grace will head back to Ohio University for her fourth and final year. Because of the knowledge she has gained from OU and her work ethic her future in storytelling journalism looks bright. Her goal is to someday work for the New York Times in their short documentaries department. Wherever Grace ends up, she will continue to produce authentic stories that give a voice to the lost and broken in our society.
While Grace has certainly been through growth professionally this summer, it cannot measure up to the level of spiritual maturity she has reached.
“It’s been more a spiritual growth for me and I’ve really seen what true community looks like and having Christ centered friendships and how that is the foundation of how to grow your relationship with Christ is having people walk side by side with you.”
Walking side by side with Grace and hearing her story is refreshingly real in a world that seeks to cover up our weaknesses. Grace’s vulnerability in opening up about her brother’s suicide has opened the door for her to share hope and healing to others walking through the same reality. Her dependence on God and her desire to speak out on “hush-hush” topics has multiplied.
