Lyttia McManus is Awesome

December 10, 2010 / by / 1 Comment

Sophomore Elementary Education major Lyttia McManus started dancing in 7th grade. “I always wanted to move to the music but didn’t know how without looking nerdy,” she says. The cheerleader began taking jazz and hip-hop dance classes, and transferred to GCU from the University of Oregon to be part of the dance team. Her creativity spreads to drawing, painting, guitar and singing. The future teacher cannot imagine herself doing anything but teaching. “Fourth grade and I would love to be a dance and cheerleader coach.” In the meantime, she sticks to “dance and school and work.”

November 29, 2010 / by / 0 Comment

Ben Hewitt’s passion is literature. The 20-year-old published his first novel, I Toss Till Dawn, last year and is currently working on his third.

November 25, 2010 / by / 0 Comment

Patricia loves “doing life” with people; standing beside them through everything. “God made us relational individuals,” which is why she is an RA in the apartments. Life goal: Make an impact on students as a math teacher in a Title I school, showing them math is fun and relative to life. Through her own education struggles and physical battles, she realizes it’s harder to find the positive in life. But it’s still a good challenge. If God had a favorite color, according to Patricia, He’d choose the rainbow “because He never uses the same color twice.” Think about it.
