Melissa New Short History

In May 2014, I received my Marketing degree at the University of Arizona.  Then in November 2014, I moved to Australia after graduating college.  I found my place in church and the local Christian community.  I started surfing and serving as a Christian Surfer leader as well as in my local church.  My passion is to reach and impact youth for Jesus so when my Australian visa expired I looked for somewhere else to serve.  I applied for a six-month work visa in New Zealand, and moved to a small beach town in the North Island called New Plymouth where I got involved in serving with Christian Surfers New Zealand.  In April 2016, I moved back to the states and worked for a Christian-summer youth camp called TbarM Christian Camps.
