A Little Bit About Me.

As a Christian, I aim to use my God-given gifts to …

  • share the love I have received through Jesus Christ with this broken world.

  • love and serve others, especially those of less fortunate circumstances than myself.

  • bring the joy of the Lord to hurting people in need of an eternal love and forgiveness.

I am currently working at Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, California. I consider this an incredible blessing. While my role primarily consists of software development and data analysis from the left side of my brain, I have the opportunity to collaborate with artists and take visual and performing arts workshops that allow me to work the right side of my brain as well.

While I’m not totally sure where I want to take my art and technology interests, I do know one thing: I want to use my talents to glorify God.

During my time at USC, I made the decision to put my Christian faith before everything else in my life, and it has made an incredible difference in how I live out my gifts and serve others. Each day, I strive to use my talents to glorify God and bring joy to others rather than achieve success for myself. And it is only through my faith in Jesus Christ that I have been able to give up my selfish ambitions and use my gifts to serve others in a way that glorifies God.

I absolutely love my local church, where I’m involved with serving children and members of the community who are in need. Specifically, I sing in the choir, serve in the nursery, participate in Women’s Ministry programs, and travel to less-fortunate countries on mission trips. I also love teaching dance and tutoring mathematics to young children.

If you have any ideas, suggestions, or feedback for me, I’d love to hear from you at this address: nataliemonger@gmail.com

And, in case you’re curious, here are some of my favorite Bible verses that encompass why I aim to serve my amazing God and His people in all I do:

  • Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. ~ Proverbs 16:3

  • Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. ~ 1 John 4:11

  • Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. ~ Romans 12:21
