Paula was born in Ventspils and has lived there her whole life. Since she was born, her mom was part of the church and Paula attended Sunday School and later, youth nights. When she was 12, through a difficult family situation, she accepted Christ as her savior. Later, she started working with youth. At the age of 16, she was introduced to Josiah Venture through a local Fusion ministry. Inspired by what was happening and how God was working in the first camp, she became one of the leaders. Now she is a youth ministry leader, actively involved in church and discipling high school girls. She accepted God's call to join the JV Latvia team in September 2018 as director of operations. She is excited to join the growing team and eager to invest in the lives of Latvian students.
