Hi I'm Sydney

I'm from Kentucky. I am attending BYU. I love politics and pizza. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a humanitarian and I love politics. I have worked for United States Senators and Congressman since I was 15. My dream is to go to DC and work on Capitol Hill. I love politics, specifically legislation so much because I think it has the power to drive change that will better the lives of others. I am also an advocate for world-wide gender equality. One day I hope to become a human rights attorney so I can fight for those rights on a large and effective scale.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love this gospel. I want to follow my Savior wherever he leads. I have read the Book of Mormon and when I knelt in prayer to ask my Father in Heaven if it was true, the Holy Ghost testified to me that it was the word of God. I have felt my Savior's love each time I make a mistake or go through a hardship. I know that the atonement is real. Jesus Christ bled and died to atone for my sins. Because of Him I can endure all things and one day live with my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Up until this year, I have taught the 9 year old's at church. I love my teaching them. It's been my favorite part of church. Seeing them light up with excitement as they read scriptures about Jesus or talk about how they can be like Jesus at school and at home gives me the best feeling in the world. Now, I am apart of a congregation that is only for single adults. It is different and I definitely miss teaching the 9 year olds but I still love it. I am currently the Facebook Specialist for our congregation. I get to share the gospel online and encourage others in my church to do it as well. Getting people excited about church activities and sharing my testimony as well as helping others share their testimonies of the gospel is so rewarding.
