Hi I'm Sydney
I'm an athlete. I'm a musician. I'm a dancer (at heart). I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.
I have played soccer for most of my life and I love it. I have also played the violin for about 7 years and continue to do so after my mission. I was a student at Utah Valley University with a majoring in Digital Media hoping to go into making movies as a carreer. I was born in D.C. and raised in Maryland, which I love too. I hope to live the rest of my life along the east coast, but who knows what will happen with that. I love history, politics, movies and going on road trips. I hope to be a world traveler one day.
Why I am a Mormon
Not many are givien the chance of being born into a family that already lives this faith, but I did. It was what I knew and what I was brought up to be, but when I was older I decided for myself that I wanted to know if this was what I wantde to do for the rest of my life. I was prepared to make some hefty life decisions and I knew that if I was going to persue these goals I wanted to find out how important this faith was to me. After about 4 years of praying I finally received my answer. It is a rare experiance to have a single event where your answer to your prayers was so strong and undeniable that it is too personal for me to write here. But after going about my life for the next two years not only did I know that this church was true and that Jesus' church was once again on the earth today, but I also came to know that the Lord had a plan for me, which included living as a missionary for the next 18 months to the Spanish-speaking people in the Arizona Tucson Mission. I am so happy to be here and I can already see how it has blessed me and my family.
How I live my faith
I try to be good friend, a good daughter and a good student. Families aren't easy but they are worth it and there is a reason for why each person is in our family. There is a reason why they are there. And when it comes to school, school has always been a struggle for me. However, I know that getting an education is something that I need to persue in this life. I know that having an education will bless myself and my family and it is one of those trials in life that I need the Lord's help to make it through.
