I am Jared Holt Pickrell. I was raised in Rocklin, California. In
high school, I was the president of the Christian Club at my school,
the captain of the tennis, worked at In-N-Out Burger, taking four AP
Classes, and on church leadership at my high school youth group. Now
that I am here at UCLA, I am an active member of the fraternity SAE,
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, highly involved with an on campus Christian
fellowship called Campus Crusade for Christ also known here as CRU,
I am a business economics, a second year, and I attend the church,
Reality LA, in West Hollywood. I would describe my personality type
as a competitor, achiever, and activator. But most importantly, I am
first and foremost a Christian. I live my life for one person, and one
person only, his name being Jesus Christ. Through the research I did
in high school I came to the conclusion that Jesus Christ was a man
who lived approximately two-thousand years ago, while being fully man
I believe he was also fully God. I live my life for him. Whether it
be striving to bring him glory in high school by striving for excellence
in everything I said or did. Now in college it’s the same thing, in
everything I say and do I try to bring it all back to the glory of
God. I study for a test, to be a good steward of the gifts he’s given
me, I play sports and give thanks to him for the body he gave me, I
go to a fraternity party not to drink or smoke but to talk to others
about the unfathomable love he has for them and me, and I go to church
and CRU to talk to others about his incredible glory. Now some might
think this a foolish reason to do what I do, but for me it’s the
reason I live and breathe. Because I know that for me “to live is
Christ and to die is gain,” as the Apostle Paul puts it.in the book
of Philippians in the Bible. In other words I do this because I want to
be like Christ was to people on this earth, and I know I have the hope
of heaven when I die.
