Hi I'm Austin

I am a college student attending BYU-Idaho. Im hoping to attend law school after I graduate and Im a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Austin. I am the son of two wonderful parents and I have three brothers. I grew up near Columbus, Ohio in a small town called Marysville. I am currently attending BYU-Idaho and I am working towards going to law school. I love to be active and play sports. I am a rugby player and I like to play football and basketball as well. I am hoping to go in to sports/entertainment law for a career. When I was 9 years old I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It has been a big part of my life. While it is a struggle it has taught me a lot about life and it has most definitely helped me to mature. As a teenager I volunteered as an ambassador for the American Diabetes Association. I hope to be able to continue to help raise awareness for the disease.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the principles of joy and happiness that the gospel teaches. Following the principles of the gospel have never once caused me pain or heartache. The gospel brings safety and comfort in a world that is filled with negativity and sadness. It is what guides me to be the best individual that I can be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. I try to live my life so that I can make my father in heaven proud. I am working towards serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I also currently help with teaching sunday school at church.
