Hi I'm Emma

I'm a proud Canadian. love theatre, dance, and I'm a world travelor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of 6 members, me being the youngest. I followed in my family's footsteps in many aspects: the love of the arts became the first of these. Watching plays and musicals was an activity that could be enjoyed by us all, and dance was something I was passionate about for a large portion of my youth. As I got older, I got hooked on the wonders of the world, and I became a world traveler. My favourite memories are ones spent in different areas of the globe, and I fell in love with what different cultures had to offer. I now attend school in America and, while I don't have as much time to travel with my family anymore, hope for a future where I can carry that tradition with a family of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

I remember being a young girl in high school, being around hundreds of people telling me what I should or shouldn't believe. I went to a very opinionated high school where people voiced their mind without hesitation. I remember being very confused, and I didn't know what to believe. Then I decided to put my trust in God and follow His church, and see where that got me. Over the course of the next few years, I began to realize the incredible and immense joy that the gospel brought me. By simply doing what God wanted me to do, and obeying Him, I was able to feel the peace and happiness that He offered. And it was sweeter than anything I had ever tasted. I wanted to feel that way my whole life, and I wanted everyone to feel that same happiness that I felt.

How I live my faith

Growing up as a member in the church, I was able to be very involved in the responsibilities asked of my family members. I remember helping my mom make activities and going with my dad to help him with a service task for the elderly in our church. When I turned 18, I was able to receive responsibilities of my own and had the experience of teaching a class of 9 years olds in Sunday School, and was also the Assistant Director for a large youth girls camp run by the church. I know that these experiences have helped me improve characteristics that could help me, even outside church-related situations. I learned about leadership, planning, responsibility and how to be proactive. These are all attributes that I have carried with me to any and all other tasks in the church I am given. They all help me improve in their own way, and I cherish every second of it.
