Hi I'm Claire

I grew up in Las Vegas. I'm an avid reader and writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I'm 24 and a college graduate! I studied Creative Writing, Spanish, and Vocal Performance. I am currently volunteering teaching English in Mexico. I love to read, write, and sing. I also enjoy going mountain biking, hiking, camping, rock climbing, rappelling, and would eventually like to try spelunking as well. I've been writing for fun since I was 8, editing for my mom and her twin sister since I was 12, and writing seriously since I was 14. I've been in choirs since I was 8, when I first started taking piano lessons. I love music of all kinds, but mostly country, soft rock, oldies, rock, k-pop, and pop.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born and raised Mormon, I always knew what I believed. When I was a teenager though, it was hard to follow what I believed. I couldn't just go off of my mom and dad's testimonies anymore. I wanted to know for myself. I stopped going to church for awhile, and I made some mistakes. When I was a Senior in High School, my church leaders were amazing and helped me to see what I really believed and why. I gained a testimony of my own and I haven't regretted it since. I follow Christ by loving everyone I meet, by being there for those who need me. I love this Gospel, and I love God and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I enjoy just being a listening ear to those who need one. I also attend the temple once a week as possible, if not more. Some of the callings I've had in the past involve music. I love music and I enjoy bringing music to others. My favorite calling in the past has been music director for the children. My job was to teach the children the songs in our songbook that they would be singing in a program at the end of the year. I love helping with kids. Another fun calling I had involved setting up musical numbers for church on Sundays, it was a lot of fun being involved with the music in the church.
