Kesi Hess is the Vice-President of Fellowship of Christian Athletes and is involved in My Sister’s Keeper Inc. She also pays On Tennessee State University’s basketball team as a senior. She has been known as an electrifying scorer that is a deadly three point shooter. She is from Columbus, OH and majors in accounting.
When I interviewed her, she talked about the importance of hanging with people who have a lot of ambition because it pays off. Many people enter college and hang with people that strangle their drive and it has negative dividends. Which plays into the theme from 1 Corinthians 15:33 (NASB), “Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”
She discussed her favorite scripture, Galatians 6:9 (NASB), “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” This scripture depicts the Christian walk in a nut-shell. It can become easy to lose compassion for doing the right things but, this tells us that if we continue to do the right things we will see the benefits. It may seem like benefits in our life take forever to occur but this scripture gives hope in a hopeless world.
Kesi is a very busy college student, since she is a student athlete, so we talked about how to properly manage one’s time in college. She quickly said, “I just do it, Robert.” She makes sure that she completes her work early, so she leaves no room for procrastination. Procrastination is a disease that cripples the vitality and vigor of many college students around the world.
I asked Ms. Hess what her favorite book was and she said the bible. She irrevocably stands as great Christian Athlete leader on her campus and will be someone who makes a difference in our unmoral and unethical world. Last night, President Barrack Obama spoke elegantly in his speech, he said, “We don’t turn back. We leave no one behind. We pull each other up!” Kesi lives up to the centrality of Obama’s statement in his speech.
