From a Dream to a Calling: FAMILYYA at World Youth Day Rio 2013!

FAMILYYA Youth Coordinator and Chapel volunteer Jessica Abejar had just recently returned from her pilgrimage to World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she performed during their four-day long Youth Festival. Jessica was recommended as a performer by Chapel moderator Rev. Dr. Joseph Marabe, and her piece "Mother" was selected by the Festival coordinators. Below, Jessica recounts her the details of her performance and the memories made along the path to following her dreams.
