Hi I'm Hannah

I grew up in Bountiful, Utah. I ran cross country and sang in some choirs. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student, studying Classics. Which means if you like Percy Jackson at all, that's basically my major. Classics involves the study of Greek and Roman Civilizations, including learning Latin or Greek - I'm learning Latin. I love reading, playing the piano, and singing. I love musicals, but have never been in one. I love dancing, but I am just a beginner. I took a tap class and a world dance class, and world dance is my favorite. I love making new friends and keeping old friends. I love being outside and going for walks or hikes. I competed in track and cross country in high school, mostly distance, but I really love to run short distances, like the 400 meter dash or the 800 meter dash, which makes it hard to practice or compete, especially when you're in college. I have five siblings, 3 in-laws, and 9 nieces and nephews, with one on the way! I love my family a whole lot, we have so much fun when we get together!

Why I am a Mormon

It's as simple as this: I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and want to love others as He loves them and become more like Him. I want to live a happy life with my family, and not only does the gospel offer that, but life with them eternally, if we live righteously. I want to be able to change and be forgiven of my sins and misdeeds. I have experienced the light that shines from the darkness and I never want to go back to that darkness. In the LDS church, I can be myself, confidently, and love and be loved freely. And I don't want to let that go.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I led the music. Every other week I would have the opportunity to go up in front of my ward and sing with them. I loved having that opportunity to show my love for them and for my religion. I tried to show support for my fellow members by singing in the ward choir, and attending all my meetings and participating in class discussions. I loved having "Family Time" once a week, where a group of us in the ward would get together and have fun. Another great thing was visiting teaching and home teaching, where we could go visit and teach people and people could come visit us. I learned to listen to others and hear their struggles and really learn to love them and be friends with them. I also felt I could tell these people anything I was going through, and was even given a blessing by my home teachers.
