Hi I'm Madalyn

I love music, I love to laugh, and I love going on adventures. I'm a runner, a dancer, and an artist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pre-med college student majoring in Portuguese, and I plan to become a physical therapist. I've lived in the D.C. area my whole life, but I love traveling and exploring new places. One of my favorite places is Lisbon, Portugal, where I served an LDS mission for 18 months. I also love many kinds of dancing, including tap, ballet, and salsa; lots of sports and outdoor activities; and the French and Portuguese languages. Music is a big part of my life - I love listening to many different kinds of music and learned to play the piano and viola when I was young. I also love running and recently completed my first marathon! Next time I hope to qualify for the Boston marathon and maybe even complete an Ironman triathlon someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel! I live it because I know I'm happier when I live the way Jesus Christ taught us to live. I also love it because it helps me learn truth about myself and the world around me. It is very comforting to know who I am, where I come from, and where I want to go. I know I am never alone because I am a daughter of God and He will always love me and be there for me.

How I live my faith

My faith has been a part of me my whole life, from going to church with my family every Sunday to working with the other women in my young single adult group at college, to serving as a full-time missionary. To me, the most important aspect of my testimony is my faith in Jesus Christ, our Savior, so I try my best to emulate the perfect example He set for us. I do this by following His teachings and commandments found in the scriptures, praying for guidance, and looking out for the needs of others. It is my belief that even a small gesture of kindness or a smile can be a miracle to someone who needs it.
