Harry Miletich-Hospitality Volunteer Lead (he/him)
In the summer of 2016, God revealed to me that I am transgender (FTM), which released me from severe depression. Two months later I moved from the Okanagan in BC to Calgary to be near my family and to start the journey I have always dreamed about: returning to school to pursue a career in the medical field. God is not ‘safe’, but He is good! I am looking forward to continuing to grow to be like Jesus, and looking forward to seeing CQC thrive!
