Carrie had just gotten involved with InterVarsity only a few months before Urbana 12. While washing dishes, she heard God telling her to go to Urbana. She had no idea what that meant. She then saw a Facebook post with a video about Urbana. She had goosebumps and was teary-eyed at this point. However, she had no idea how to pay for it. She told her friends and family about being called to Urbana and had the funds within three days. At Urbana, she was reminded of a calling God placed on her heart at the age of eight to become a missionary. She was sobbing and fell to the ground. Since then, she has became a student leader in InterVarsity, went on the Bolivia GP, and came on staff.
