Emileigh Sampson

I am a third year student at the University of Guelph focusing my degree on Political Science & Marketing with the hope of attending teachers’ college later on.
I am originally from Guelph but did not start attending Lakeside Central until my Grade 10 year of high school, and what a difference this church has made in my life and the lives of my family members!
I have been volunteering at Lakeside with the youth (Pulse) since 2012 and have since moved on to the Nursery, Age 2, and Age 3 classrooms in Lakeside Kids, and Grade 10 with Fuse. Working with these kids has led me to find a passion for youth and being able to help them grow deeper in their faith with God and experience life as a genuine Christian.
My favourite verse that has gotten me through many personal struggles is 2 Corinthians 5:7 – “for we walk by faith, not by sight” – a constant reminder that it is our faith in God that keeps us going.
