Hi I'm Amanda Burgett

I'm from San Jose, CA. I'm a huge nerd and when I "grow up", I'm going to make comic books and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving as a missionary is the CA Irvine mission! But after that, I'm going to school for Illustration because I'm going to make comic books! I love art/telling stories and I think graphic novels capture the best of both worlds. I've been a nerd/gamer as long as I can remember. I loved to sit on my parents' laps and play computer games as a kid and that love has only grown over time. I love video games, comic books and most everything else associated with nerdery. Spider-Man is my favorite super hero because he is the best, no question. I love my five younger siblings and try to share my love of nerdy things as much as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I've gone through hard times in my life just like everyone else but the one thing that's always pulled me through is my testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I have seen God bless my family and my life countless times and I have no intention of turning away from a good thing. I know that this gospel is true and perfect. I know that if I try to live as Christ did, I will return to live with Heavenly Father and my family forever. I want to share this with everyone that I can and that's why I'm happily serving a mission! Whoo!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in Irvine, California. I'm excited to be able to serve and teach other people about Christ's love for us. I'm trying to set the best example I can for my younger siblings. I love seeing other people strengthen their relationship with Christ.
