Hi I'm Chelsea Hickman

I'm a playwright, actress, and someday YA novelist. I love kittens. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Kansas next door to gypsies and rode my bike for hours at a time. I loved adventure, especially during the summer and early fall. I still love going on walks and playing with sidewalk chalk. All my life I've wanted to write or perform. My parents encouraged me while growing up to pursue my creative impulses and push myself. Nothing has ever come easy to me; I've always had to work for anything I've wanted or needed. And, so far, it's definitely paid off. I'm graduating from Brigham Young University in less than a month, with a BA in Theatre Arts Studies with an emphasis in Playwriting and a minor in English. I will attend graduate school in two years. As for romance, I'm married to my best friend. He's the best thing ever. We play video games and give each other piggy back rides quite often. We are young, but so happy. Our testimonies of the Gospel brought us together and keep us close.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've known true happiness through living the Gospel and I can't deny that joy. I'm a Mormon because I've experienced harrowing pain through letting the Gospel go and returning to find a home, ready for me every time. I'm a Mormon because I've seen loved ones lose their testimonies of the Gospel and I love them still. I'm a Mormon because I've learned to accept myself as a Daughter of God. I'm a Mormon because my scars have healed through the Atonement. I'm a Mormon because Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me.

How I live my faith

The biggest thing for me when living my faith is by keeping an open mind and softened heart. So many people everyday are living hard and challenging lives. It could very well be they are having the worst day they've ever had when I run into them. It is in those moments I live my faith through a listening ear, gentle questions, and an uncomplicated understanding. At the core of every human there is a need for love. I try to offer that in both times of sorrow and in times of joy.
