Hi I'm Hannah Hansen

I am a college student and a competitive swimmer! I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a middle child of seven children who grew up in what use to be the small town of Lehi Utah. I love to play outside, watch sunsets, and eat really good food. My senior year in high school I procrastinated on all my art credits so took a bunch of art classes where I learned to love to paint! Once upon a time I learned to sing ok in a choir in Jr. High but I still like to think I can harmonize occasionally haha. Every summer my parents would put me on a summer league swim team and I grew to love it! Eventually I joined a year round USA club team in middle school. I was "slow" but I stuck with it! Eventually I got good enough to be able to compete on BYU's swim team my freshman year in college. I hope to be able to swim while I get a degree to hopefully become a Special Education teacher :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am not perfect. Through Christ and his teachings though I am able to find peace in my heart and keep striving to become like he is, which is perfect. Without his help I can't make it. Without him I seem to be more selfish, lazy, and ignorant of the things around me, but I notice when I apply his words and teachings to my life I am more kind, hardworking, and aware.

How I live my faith

Now I have decided to forgo swimming for a year and half to be able to share what brings me the most joy in life! I am preparing to serve an LDS mission to the lovely state of Oregon! The purpose of that mission is to invite others to come to Christ. Some people (especially those who swim) may call me crazy for taking so much time out of the water and they might be right; but without my Savior, Jesus Christ and my Father in Heaven I can tell you I wouldn't have made it this far in swimming. I know that they love me and have a plan for me on this earth so I can return to be with them and become like they are :) I want people to know the love they have for them, so I am putting swimming aside in the hope I will be able to bring their message of love and peace to someone.
