Hi I'm Drew Camarena.

I was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota. I love Pokémon, music, the movie Tangled, rugby, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing sports. My favorites are rugby and football (in that order). I play prop and 8-man in rugby, but I no longer play football. I hope to play rugby in college. I enjoy drawing and reading as well. Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter, and the Underland Chronicles are some of my favorites series. I like to play video games as well, but I'm lousy at games like Halo or Call of Duty. The Legend of Zelda (especially Ocarina of Time) and all the Pokémon games are my favorites (hit me up if you want to talk Pokemon). I also enjoy several TV shows including MASH, Pokemon, Doctor Who, Bones, and Once Upon A Time. I am an honor student and I am in the top percent of my class. I hope to go to BYU after my mission. I listen to a specific genre of music: symphonic metal and power metal. My favorite bands include Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, Kamelot, and Delain. Among my playlists are Stratovarius, Angra, Sabaton (not exactly power/symphonic metal, but still good), Eklipse, and many others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and I love the support it gives me. It allows me to persevere through the hardest of times and provides comfort when I'm feeling distraught/hopeless. I love the overall feeling I get when I go to church related functions, whether its church itself, mutual, or anything else. God has blessed me so much in this life and I have prayed about the Book of Mormon, receiving a witness that it is true.

How I live my faith

I've always been involved in leadership positions in my church since I turned 12. I make sure to be an example in all my work at school and on my sports teams. There aren't a whole ton of LDS kids in my school, so I have to make sure I leave a positive impression on everyone I come in contact with. I also hope to spread the gospel as a missionary.
