Hi I'm Christian Hansen

I was born in Salt Lake City, raised in Virginia, and I have family in Sweden. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read books; fiction, non-fiction, fantastic, serious, and anything else that I think is interesting. My dad was my scoutmaster, so I love hiking and experiencing the beauty of Utah. I'm a big movie fan; my favorite series is Star Wars. Currently I'm attending university as an English Major. I'm loving all my classes so far and I'm very excited to continue in my studies!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, and as I have grown older I have worked hard to try and follow the commandments and live my life according to the gospel. I have been incredibly blessed to have such a large family to support me as I have grown into my responsibilities in the church, and I have always tried to share that blessing with others. Personally,I feel that Christ's love has not only blessed me, it has given me the strength, the courage, the intelligence, and the inspiration to help me during life's trials.

How I live my faith

I try to be helpful and kind to others, and I try to set a good example for my friends and siblings. I have done several volunteer projects, including trips to the Food Bank, volunteering at my local library, helping others with their Eagle Scout Projects, and completing my own Eagle Scout project. I really enjoyed working on my project because it involved one of my favorite passions: reading. My project involved gathering book donations from around my community and organizing them so that they could be donated to a local school to form the foundation for a library. I feel so gifted to have shared my love of reading with others.
