Hi I'm Hannah Ahlander

I have grown up in Utah. I am a dancer, singer, photographer for a local band, and student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 18 years old and I am attending college at BYU. I have grown up in a very musical family. My dad sings and is a music producer in Salt Lake and my mom majored in dance and is currently the Production Manager for a band. I also enjoy singing and dancing like my parents do as well as anything artsy/musical. I am a volunteer photographer for a local band called Beyond 5. I have been with them to many different cities in the US and it is just a blast being able to do what I love!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me a better person. The church constantly teaches us to serve others and live a wholesome lifestyle. I don't think any church could be considered bad if all they are doing is encouraging good actions. Being a part of the LDS church makes me happy. I meet so many amazing people constantly that I never would have met if I hadn't been a part of this church. My best friends have come from church, seminary, EFY (a church based summer camp) and I have had so many amazing opportunities I wouldn't have gotten if I wasn't a member.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply being the person that Christ wants me to be. I work at the MTC in Provo, Utah where all of the missionaries are trained. I love being able to be around so many young men and women that are going out to teach people all around the world! I also have held multiple callings in the youth group in my church and continue to serve in my ward. I am also currently on the Hall Council for my floor in my dorm, which consists of members from my ward since I am attending an LDS school. I believe that by serving others around us we are living our faith in a way that Heavenly Father and Christ would be proud.
