Hi I'm Amanda

I'm a city girl, a best friend, a sister, a Michael Bublé fan, and a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in New Jersey. Right before my senior year of high school, my family moved to Utah. It sounds like it would be a hard experience, but I quickly made wonderful friends that made the transition easy. I'm obsessed with the mountains here and enjoy spending time there. At the same time, I love the city life in Salt Lake. In NJ I loved playing on my school's field hockey team. Some other things I like to do include playing the piano and running. But mostly I just love spending time with my close friends and family. I'm the oldest of 5 kids and love it. I love my parents and all my siblings. One of my brothers has autism and that's been both a challenge and blessing for me. After a year of college I think I'd like to study something related to the medical/health/wellness field, probably dental hygiene or dietetics, but we'll just have to wait and see!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. Living the gospel brings me so much joy and it's the only way life makes any sense to me. I'm so grateful that I've never had to live my life without Christ's true church on the Earth today. God has continued to bless me throughout my life and I don't want Him to stop!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by regularly attending church and the temple. I will also spend 18 months serving in Peru as a full-time missionary for the Church, teaching others about this gospel that is so precious to me.
