For years, Krista Allen has used her free time to help others in need.
In high school, her older brother started a program to give meals to the homeless, so Allen helped with that and other social projects. Since she started at Anderson University, she has gone on several mission trips within the United States, and one to Nairobi, Kenya.
Today, Allen will be one of the 640 students to graduate from Anderson University.
But shortly after that, she will leave on her next adventure: an 11-month internship in Ethiopia.
