Lexi Sunberg, freshman social justice major, is adapting to life at Trevecca after spending all her growing up years on the mission field.
Sunberg was born in Kansas City and then was moved to Russia when she was just five-weeks-old. Her parents are missionaries.
“I know a lot of people who don’t enjoy it. It’s normal life to me. I love it,” said Sunberg on the life of a missionary kid, “I really like to travel, meeting people, and hearing stories. There are some pretty awesome people out there.”
Sunberg and her family lived in Russia for two years and then moved to Bulgaria where they stayed for 13 years, and Hungary for three years.
