Hi I'm Rachel

I grew up in Draper, Utah. I'm going to school for Marine Biology. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a lacrosse player, and a swimmer. My strokes are backstroke and butterfly. My favorite holiday is Halloween and I love to work in haunted houses during October. I love zombies, and scifi shows. I am a 49ers fan, and I follow football pretty regularly. I love to read, and I've always been obsessed with Harry Potter. I love music, mostly indie, electronic, and pop. My favorite artist is Ellie Goulding, and I look a lot like her! I draw and paint. My favorite thing to paint is recreations of Monet's. Impressionism is what I do best. I sing, but have never been very good at any instruments. Although, I did play the viola for quite a few years. I want to become a Marine Biologist or a Social Worker.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this Church since I was a young girl, but, around age 12 I stopped going to church. I didn't believe in this church and by the time I was in high school I claimed to be an atheist. I was very unhappy, struggling with undiagnosed depression, and feelings of not belonging anywhere and being lost. I decided I needed to grow up, figure out who I was, and what I believed in. I went back to church and decided to give it everything I had. And if it wasn't for me, then I would go the opposite way. Through prayer, scripture reading, blessings, and fasting, I was introduced into this incredible gospel. I gained a very strong testimony, and will never be able to deny the Church again.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday, but I have not yet had a calling in my ward. Being resently re-converted to the church I haven't done too much. However, I love to plan lessons and help my mom teach the youth in the ward.
