Hi I'm D.R. West

Grew up my whole life in Utah. I LOVE the outdoors! I unicycle, pole vault, do parkour, & ride motorcycles. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 right now. I love to do anything that deals with sports or being outside. I love my family. I love to unicycle, pole valut, and ride motorcycles. I started unicycling when I was about 16. I got an old unicycle from a neighbor at Christmas time. It was old and wore out pretty fast. I got another one next Christmas from my parents. I starting learning how to jump up and down stairs and off rocks. Eventually, I bent the rim really bad and had to buy a stronger one. I now have what they call a Mountain Unicycle and its a lot more sturdy. I can jump down a six stair, ride backwards, and can almost ride without having my feet on the pedals. It is a lot of fun! I always wanted a motorcycle since I was young and finally got one when I was 18. I had it for one year and then had to sell it for school and a mission. I love doing any sport with a ball. I am not the best at any of them but I am pretty good at all of them. I love to run and do track and field. I started to pole vault my senior year and did pretty good. It got towards the end of the season for track and field and I had the opportunity to go to state my first year. It was really exciting and had a blast will all my friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the faith with my parents. I didnt want to believe but they never gave up on me. I found out for myself and found it to be true! I have studied and have done everything to know that what i believe is true. I have gotten the chance to test out my faith and to find out why i believe and know that it is true. I dont just believe. I know that the things i know are true. I thought when i was younger that i could be a rebel and do whatever i wanted to. I know now that I have a plan for my life and i need to follow it. The main reason why i am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is cause i chose to be and i am happier being a member than not.

How I live my faith

I follow all the commandments and live the gospel as the prophet says. I know that God lives and that he loves us. I do what i can for all my friends and nieghboors to show them and help them understand why i know what i know. Make it possible for them to find out what is true and not just take my word.
