Hi I'm Sam

I graduated high school and college early, and am working on my Ph.D. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Ph.D. student studying Neuroscience. I love music, reading, and hanging out with my friends and family. My favorite movie is the Lego Movie and I love Mumford and Sons! I could eat spaghetti every day and the Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies are my favorite treat. School is my biggest passion and I hope to one day be able to improve treatment for neurological disorders.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to stay because this gospel brings me more joy than anything else on earth! The peace and joy the gospel brings into my life is incomparable to living without it. Throughout my life I have gone through many difficult trials, all of which have strengthened my faith and confirmed to me that I have a loving Heavenly Father and a Savior, Jesus Christ. The gospel keeps me steady when I feel I cannot be,

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to incorporate the Gospel into my everyday life-whether it be reading the Book of Mormon on a study break, sharing Church videos on Facebook, or inviting a friend to a Church activity! In my ward I am a youth leader over the 12-13 year old girls, and I love teaching and learning about the Gospel with them.
