Hello everyone! My name is Mattéa, yes, WITH the accent (haha), and pronounced Ma-TAY-uh. I recently graduated from Edgewood High School (if recent can still be considered in mid-May), and this is my first year on the Romania team, and any mission team. I am super-duper excited to be a part of this team and make experiences that will last a lifetime.
A little about me: I love all animals, but especially birds and my two pups, a cockapoo named Saidie and a Labradoodle named Emmit. I had a life changing experience when I got into a car accident on Leap Day of 2016. I was driving to school when I was T-boned in a blind intersection and sent into a tree. I was a block away from the my town’s high school and there were a lot of kids walking to school, so there were so many factors that could have gone wrong but God was watching out for me. Since that day, I really took to heart the idea that life is short. I decided that I should make the most of it and do whatever I can to make the world a better place and to help others in any way that I can. I love music and songwriting as well. Before graduation, I would often jam with one of my friends, Jeremiah, and recently joined a band in hopes to spread musical joy. I am so excited to see what this trip holds for me and to make new friends along the way.
Thanks for reading!
