Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in Chandler AZ. I'm a student at ASU. I love the water, the outdoors, and exploring.

About Me

I am a goal oriented person and I always have something I am trying to achieve. For my career I hope to be a doctor some day. Right now I aspire to be an interventional cardiologist. I am studying biochemistry at ASU because I love it and because I believe it is the best major to prepare you for medical school. My favorite sport is basketball. I discovered that it was a passion of mine around 8th grade and have been improving at it ever since. I also love swimming. I never swam competitively but something about being in water especially in nature is refreshing. I love to explore and have many places I hope to visit some day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the LDS church because it brings me happiness. By living the church standards I always feel like my mind is sharp and that I have a purpose in this life. When I pray to God daily and study His word I have this sense of peace in my heart. This peace that I feel confirms that what I'm doing is right. I hope that everyone can have that peace in their lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways. First off I go to church every week. I attend the usual three hours and then afterwards I attend a mission preparation class. Another way I'm living my faith is by choosing to serve a mission. I will be leaving shortly to teach the people of Hungary. To me living my faith doesn't just entail going and attending things where you sit and listen. I think living the Mormon faith includes carrying yourself a certain way in your normal life. I always try to be like Christ and treat others with love and respect. Even if I don't agree with the choices of some people I interact with, I know that I will not be the one to judge them. Christ will judge them because he is the only one who knows what is in everyone's heart. I try to have a non-selfish attitude about everything I do because that is the way to have lasting happiness.
