Hi I'm Robert

I'm a college student. I started an anatomy program for disadvantaged high school students. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying public health with interests in health disparity and hopes of going to medical school to become a doctor. Oncology and Infectious Diseases are the fields of medicine that seem most interesting to me. I enjoy reading books, camping, and spending time with family. Trying new recipes, especially curries, is something that I like to do together with my wife. We love traveling and our latest trip was to the Pacific Northwest where we went to the Redwoods, Portland, and Seattle.

Why I am a Mormon

Believing in Jesus Christ is the foundation of my life. It informs all of my decisions and pushes me to be a better person. There are many ways of understanding Jesus Christ and His gospel, but the best way I have found is through this church. Following Jesus Christ gives me a sense of purpose, direction, and joy that is more important to me than any other goal I have.

How I live my faith

As a college student learning about the world, the inequality that is largely prevalent in our society has recently come into view. With not much else to offer or a solution but what I have learned in my classes, I decided to start an anatomy program for high school students from disadvantaged areas. We go to the schools with animal organs and teach the students about basic anatomy and physiology and then give them a chance to dissect them. My hope is that by giving them resources and exposure to a subject that I am passionate about, they too can have a desire to further their studies and education. In my own church my responsibility is to share the teachings of Jesus Christ with others over social media and in the community. Many times social media is filled with negative thoughts and images so I try and share things that inspire people for good.
