A New Perspective on the Border

Yonika Willis

Alumnus Yonathan Moya ’10 embarked on a nine-day photographic journey to humanize life on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Although Border Perspective isn’t the typical mission trip, the desire to connect and serve those in need was instilled in Moya at Bethel. He first went on a Hong Kong taskforce trip and later a Hurricane Katrina task force trip in Louisiana. He then began volunteering with the non-profit Experience Mission, where he now works as the Regional Coordinator.

Moya also developed a passion for photography in a digital photography class at Bethel, a passion he translated into Border Perspective by putting together a mini-documentary of the trip. Eventually, the brothers plan to host gallery-installments in Minneapolis, Minn., showcasing the stories and photos of the experience.
