Hi I'm Zaida Hill

I grew up in Michigan. I am the co-president of BYU College Democrats. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Provo, Utah and grew up in Michigan. Eventually, I decided to come back to Provo to study at BYU. Being a liberal in a primarily conservative school led me to enjoy talking about politics even more than I already did, so I decided to be a Political Science major. I love talking to other people, so I also decided to have a minor in communications. Some of my favorite things are ice cream, talking politics, going to concerts, quotes, zebras, the TV show Monk, singing, clever words on clothes, sea green, Gerber daisies, dancing, and birds. More than anything else, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have two younger sisters and very supportive parents who bring out the best in me. I also have an incredibly wonderful boyfriend that I met in D.C. when I was interning there this summer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us. He gave us his son, Jesus Christ, to live and be an example to us and also to die for us. Jesus Christ's Atonement is a beautiful thing. I know that Jesus Christ has felt everything that I have felt, and this has given me strength. I also know that we have modern day Prophets here on this earth who can tell us about what we need to here for our present time. I am a Mormon because I believe the Book of Mormon to be true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith my attending church for three hours every week. During this time, I am able to learn more about Jesus Christ and his Atonement. I hopefully do a good job of being an example of Christ. I also live my faith by participating in a calling, or a special assignment given to individual members of the ward. I take care of publicity in my church, which means that I make the program for church. Although this may seem like a small job, I find joy in serving my fellow church-goers in this small way.
