Hi I'm Claire

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am currently a student of International Relations. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in the LDS church, i discovered that the key to happiness and finding purpose in life is serving our fellow men. Ever since i was little, i have had the desire to share goodness and light in this very dark world. Throughout high school, i enjoyed working with and serving in the large refugee population within my city. I especially loved helping kids. I was also able to spend a summer in Cambodia, teaching English and building a school. Ever since, it has been my dream to open up a non profit organization to help the people in need, both in my home city, and abroad. I feel very passionately about helping all people gain equality, freedom and security because we are all God's children, and He loves all of us very much.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though i was raised mormon, i continue to choose to be a mormon because of the purpose, happiness, and joy that the church gives me. Because i know that i am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father, who loves me and has given me everything, I have a reason to do my best every day to please Him. I know that He loves me, and everyone else, so much that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to save us from sin, pain and even death. Because of Jesus Christ, I know that sadness does not need to last, because He is there to comfort me. I know that death is not the end because families can be together forever. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ want me to be successful. The church gives me unending joy and happiness, and thats why i am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In my area, I currently serve my fellow women. I am in charge of teaching a lesson in church once a month, and planning activities for us to do outside of church. But most importantly, I make sure that every sister has a friend and a support in times of need. I have also been called to serve a mission for the Mormon church in Thailand. I can't wait to love and serve the people there.
