Hi I'm Hugh

I'm a student at Harvard. I love to sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Ohio as the youngest of six kids. Through high school I played soccer and ran track and cross country, and I participated in a few clubs, but my very favorite thing to do was sing. I sang in choir, I sang in church, I sang in musicals, and I sang in a quartet with my three best friends. In college I joined my school's glee club and sang in an acapella group, keeping my passion alive. Now, after my freshman year of college, I'm on my way to serve a two year mission for my church in Arizona.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives me hope. It gives me hope that there is something after this life. It gives me assurance that I have a purpose on the Earth and it gives me comfort that although I struggle through life, every trial is to help me learn and grow, so that I can gain wisdom and righteousness, so that I can ultimately live, exalted, with my Father in heaven again. On a more day-to-day level though, the gospel of Jesus Christ is centered on love and charity. I believe that those are the most important principles to learn and to live by, and that is why I am a Mormon, because as a Mormon, I am constantly trying to increase in love and charity.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in every aspect of my life, whether I'm working and serving others as Christ would have me do, or simply relaxing and appreciating the beauty of God's creations and the happiness and hope that His gospel gives to me. Right now though, I'm preparing to dedicate all of my might, mind, and strength to spreading His word as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. On my mission I hope to find those who are seeking a closer relationship with their loving Father in heaven, and to help them develop that relationship.
