Future Community Leader, Allie Morosini Speaks 

By: Grace Armstrong

Baylor freshman Allie Morosini from Monument, Colorado, regularly tends to the needs of others whether she is listening to their stories or giving them a ride to HEB
grocery store.

“I love hearing people’s stories.  The Bible says we overcome by the blood of the
lamb and by the word of our testimony,” she said. “I love hearing where people come from, what their struggles are and what their successes are, because I feel like that is just a testimony to God’s grace and love and goodness and how He crafts each of us differently for a specific purpose.”

Morosini is widely loved and her care for others is recognized.  Vanessa Campbell, Morosini’s sister, commented on their experience growing up together.

“Allie’s relationship with Jesus is one thing I admire most about her, it flows out into the world around her,” she said.  “Allie is a light to everyone she meets.  Her life hasn’t always been filled with the easiest of times, but her faith in God has proven that being His child, He will provide a way in every area of your life.”

Despite difficult childhood experiences, Morosini made her way at Baylor as an up-and-coming Community Leader fueled by her love for Christ and her love for people.

“My parents were separated when I was really young, got back together and then divorced my sophomore year of high school, and there was just a lot that went into that,” she said. “My sister and her husband and their kids moved in with my mom and I, and there were a lot of fights, and I didn’t always feel safe in our house with my dad.” 

Morosini is grateful for the legacy of Baylor.

“I’d say [Baylor] was a chance to start again because my childhood and life at home was so crazy,” she said. “Baylor was a fresh start. Waco has a small town feel exactly like where I came from.  There is safety in the familiarity of the  town, and the people here have become my family—fellow students, my employers and Waco family Ed and Sharon, and countless other people.”

Baylor student Ben Allen from Houston Texas shared about Allie’s character after being in the Community Leader course with her this spring semester.

“To be a Community Leader is to provide stability for others when it comes to transitioning to college.  A CL is that person that people go to, who maintains order while helping to provide community,” he said. “Allie is sweet, compassionate and very loving, and I’m sure she’ll be fantastic in Collins because of the way she loves God and she loves people.”

Allie not only loves listening to the stories of others, but also loves to serve.  She believes that in order to be a successful CL, she must commit herself to serving others. 

“My values of leadership are captured in servanthood. I think it takes extreme humility to make a successful leader—to be a leader is to be humble and to serve,” she said.

She is driven to accomplish her goals in community building at Baylor not only because of her Christian beliefs, but also because of her definition of success. 

“Success is to leave whatever situation that you walk into better than when you first entered it,” she said.  

Allie is excited at the opportunity to serve the Baylor community and her fellow students through the CL position next year in Collins Residence Hall, and she does not take any glory for getting through the rigorous CL process.

“I get to be apart of continuing to build the community here because it’s a perpetual thing, it doesn’t just end.  People have to continue building it, and I am blessed to be a part of that legacy,” she said. “Christ is my everything, and my provider.  He has literally opened every single door this year.”  
“I love hearing people’s stories.  The Bible says we overcome by the blood of the
lamb and by the word of our testimony.  I love hearing where people come from, what their struggles are and what their successes are, because I feel like that is just a testimony to God’s grace and love and goodness and how He crafts each of us differently for a specific purpose.”
