Hi I'm Adam

I'm a premed student. I enjoy running, watching college sports, and learning about the human body. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Busy. If there was one word with which I could describe myself, it would be busy. I start most days before 3 AM as a custodian at my university. I am majoring in physiology, and have a minor in business management. When I'm not in class or studying, I am usually eating or sleeping. I prefer eating. Other things I'm involved in are research in a developmental biology lab and volunteering as a chemistry tutor. I hope to go to medical school after I graduate in two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church. As I became a teenager, though I began to explore the things I had been taught from when I was young. I followed the advice of Jesus, "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." (John 7:17). At the age of 13, I read the Bible cover to cover, as well as the Book of Mormon. The feelings of intense peace and happiness I received as I went to church and thought about what I was taught told me that it was true. Since that time, I have continued to receive feelings of assurance, and I know that I am doing what God wants me to do.

How I live my faith

I really feel that my faith influences everything about the way I live. As a Mormon, I realize that God gave us life so that we can enjoy it. I love learning all that I can, because there really isn't any truth that isn't welcomed by my faith. I am okay that at times, the things in my science classes don't completely jive with what I learn in church, because I know some day God will explain how it all works. For now, I learn everything that science has to teach me, and I continue to believe in and serve God. As an aspiring doctor, I want to impact the world through service and providing the best care I am able to provide. My religion is practical: it inspires me to do better in school, at work, and whatever else I choose to do.
