    correct use of word

    Since she embraced the ABC religion, she has become more cheerful.

    Is 'embraced' correctly used in the sentence? Should it be 'has embraced'?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: correct use of word

    To embrace means to eagerly accept a new idea, opinion, religion etc.

    It's correct

    Grammatically speaking, I think both are correct
