Hi I'm Sammie

I am a sophomore Chemistry major. I love the color purple and have always been obsessed with dolphins. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest of five kids. I love science, a lot. I am currently struggling through Organic Chemistry. I am almost done with my sophomore year of college at SUU. I love reading books, especially fantasy books. My favorite book ever, like since second grade, is The BFG. My celebrity crush is Matthew Gray Gubler. I am 19 years old, almost 20. I am kind of a spaz. I love to make people laugh. I like to randomly dance across campus. I have three shih tzus who are named Princess Gracie, Cassie Gizmo, and Megatron. I am currently working toward being able to get a bunny because there is a cute one at the petstore that has a moustache. I love singing to Disney songs. I have played the flute since I was in 4th grade. Even though I am a chemistry major, I do not know what I want to do with that degree. I have been raised in Utah. I love to swim in our pool. I was once known as the belly flop queen. I wish that I was Scottish because they have super cool accents. I watch romantic comedies like it is my job. Especially Jane Austen movies. And I love to cook.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom is a convert to the church along with her parents and siblings. I have seen how all of their lives have changed and want to feel the spirit that they feel, and I have felt it. I have relied on the Savior through my trials and it has given me peace. I have gone through and often go through difficult times where I doubt if I believe in the Church, but I always come back to the basics and know that it is true. I greatly appreciate the values that I have been raised with because they have helped me find a purpose in life. I may feel lost, but I have direction. I want to be with my family forever, and I know that I can be. Also, I love temples. This church brings me peace. That is why I am a Mormon and I love it.

How I live my faith

I am a family home evening mom in my ward, so I plan the activities for a group of people in my ward on Monday nights to help them relax, have fun, and come closer to God. I attend institute which is a place where we take classes that help us be strong. Currently, I am in the Atonement, Repentance, and Forgiveness class, and it has really helped my testimony and feel closer to my Savior.
