Jessie Beddoe was born on February 28, 1999, and currently resides in a small town in south Mississippi. She is in the eighth grade and a member of Robotics and Beta club; she plays soccer for the local recreational league, and likes to play the Wii and sketches in her spare time. As a member of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Biloxi, Mississippi, she is inspired to help other people be enlightened by the church through fictional stories about the church and the miracles God bestows upon its followers. This year, Jessie was nominated to be Holy Trinity's Youth Representative to receive the Archangel Michael Award for her involvement in church activities. Metropolitan Alexios will present Jessie her award at an awards banquet in November.
Jessie Beddoe, one of our teen contributors at OCN, shares the story of a special experience she had during a visit to New York City. What started out as a day of vacation adventure became a chance to explore the deepest instincts of her living faith.
