Hi I'm Micah Fischer

Hi I’m Micah Fischer. I grew up in a small town called Springville Ut. I enjoy playing sports, and playing the cello.

About Me

I grew up in a town set in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains. I played soccer and basketball while growing up. I started to play the cello when I was in the sixth grade, and continued all through junior high and high school and a semester in college. One of my favorite memories is playing the Firebird at the final concert of our semester at BYUI. In high school I tried out for the boys’ soccer team as a freshman, sophomore, and a junior but never made the team. I came close to making the team as a junior but got cut at the last second. This was devastating to me and I spent the rest of the school year being angry. During the summer before my senior year I placed well in my age group in a local 5k, after that I started thinking maybe I could do cross country and track. As a senior I ran Cross country in the fall and track and field in the winter and spring. In track I ran in both the 110 meter hurdles and the 300 meter hurdles. I learned that I could spend my time being angry or I could change my outlook and open myself to new experiences. I am so glad I did. Once I figured this out, I was so much more happy and comfortable with myself. After I graduated from Springville High School I attended school at Brigham Young University Idaho and I plan on going back there after my mission to Australia.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and I grew up in a community where the main religion is LDS. So I think even if I wasn’t born in the church I would still have found it eventually because of the friends I made in school and the friends I grew up with. It also makes sense to me that God loves me and cares about me and that when I die I don’t just fade into nothingness, but that there is something after I die. Also I am a Mormon because I want to be Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my religion by obeying the commandments and living the principles of the gospel. I try to be an example to those around me.
