Ari has been serving as the second grade teacher’s aide since 2015. She loves being able to see Harambee students understand God’s character from a young age and to help them gain a vision for their lives serving Christ. She holds a degree in International Studies with a specialization in Development from The Ohio State University. Outside of Harambee Ari leads a high school Bible study on Columbus’ East side, which she hopes will be a spiritual home for Harambee graduates as they enter high school. In her free time, she likes to read, go on walks, and hang out with friends. A verse that reminds her of her ministry at the school is Philippians 1:3-5, where the Apostle Paul thanks God for the Philippian church because of their “participation in the gospel.” Ari feels privileged to get to participate in the gospel alongside our students and to work at Harambee!
