Hi I'm Dakota Bauder

I was born and raised on an island in Alaska. My interests are basketball, drumming/piano, and outdoor activities.

About Me

I was born and raised on an island in Alaska. My interests are basketball, drumming/piano, and outdoor activities. Despite the size of my small school, we are actually really good at basketball. This year we have the best chance at winning the state championship than any other school. However after praying and pondering the scriptures I felt inspired to put in the extra effort to graduate early. By doing this I would cut my basketball season short to serve a mission. I know that my decision to serve our heavenly father will be a greater experience than any state championship.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, and lucky enough I have had my whole life to learn about the truth of the gospel. This is the true church, and I am so blessed to be apart of it. I know that as I serve a mission, I will bring the same appreciation that I have, to others.

How I live my faith

Along with my church, I am also very involved in scouting. I have worked long and hard within the young mens program to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. Being a scout has helped me become a leader in both my personal and religious life. I am an assistant to the bishop, and have a lot of responsibilities running church activities.
