The Nike Swoosh. A white apple missing a bite. Three simple circles that, when joined together, became the foundation for the “happiest place on earth.” Bekah was enthralled by the idea that such simple imagery could become so culturally iconic and drive brands, even entire industries. She began to study graphic design—actually she ate, drank, slept, and breathed design. She quickly earned an internship with a local ad agency and began drumming up other work as a side hustle.
Bekah loved the work, but she also loved the freedom it offered. All that was required was her laptop and a WiFi connection. She could work from almost anywhere in the world. With that in mind, she began to explore options with her pastor to take advantage of her freedom and engage in missions. She was able to go on a couple of mission trips to a faraway city where her church had sent missionaries. She worked with them for a few months at a time and kept up her graphic design work. While there, Bekah became a student of the Hindu culture, formed relationships with locals, and even figured out that she was a natural for language learning.
Bekah will soon transition full time to that city and join the missionary team on the ground. She’ll continue to build her graphic design business, use her design skills to the serve the needs of the team, and pick up the relationships she pursued during the mission trips, now as a fully engaged member of the missionary team.
