I have obtain my Eagle scout rank. I love being in the outdoors and exploring. I enjoy making new friends and taking care of them. I plan to go to Washington State University after my mission. I am serving only the best mission around! New York Utica Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member since I was little. When i was growing up, I started to understand more and more about the Gospel and His teachings. Everyday I always spend a small personal time reading with the scriptures, praying and pondering, and writing in my journal about what I learned or read. I am so grateful for the Gospel being part of my life and helping me understand and compare the teachings and experience that the prophets and the savior went through.

How I live my faith

Whenever people have questions or they are curious about the church I'm never afraid to share or answer the best i could about the church and what we believe. I always try to become the best example to my family, friends, and myself.
