Hi I'm Marie.

I'm from northern California, I love to play basketball, I want to be an engineer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student, studying to be a chemical engineer. I spent last winter studying abroad in and around Jerusalem! I loved everything about the Holy Land, and I hope to go back someday. I like to do crossword puzzles and spend time with my family over the holidays... with a brother and 5 little sisters, there's lots to keep me busy!

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a member of the LDS Church; I've studied and prayed with a desire to know truth, and the surest truth I've ever encountered is that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings peace and happiness to my life and the lives of those I love. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and that He is a perfect example of love and service. I want to be like Him.

How I live my faith

In my student ward, there are lots of international students trying to learn English better. I serve as a facilitator of an English class that we offer twice a week; we teach practical, conversational English and make lots of new friends too. I am looking forward to serving a full-time mission for the Church this coming summer!
