Hi I'm Hope Dargan

I'm a born and raised Floridian. I'm studying computer science. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In high school, I wrestled, played the trumpet in band and went through the IB Program. I am in college studying computer science. In my free time I like to ice skate, play squash and hang out with my friends. Currently, I am serving a mission in Sweden.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was raised in the church, a lot of people in my family aren't active members. Growing up, I think I went because that was what people expected from me. But when I went to college, I realized that I had a testimony of my own. I discovered that when I lived the principles of the gospel, I was happier and I did better in school. I've also had many experiences in my life where I have felt the Spirit strongly telling me - this is true. I have read the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true. I know that I want an eternal family some day and living the gospel is the way to get there.

How I live my faith

At school, I go to a ward that consists of college age kids like me. I served as a Ward Missionary, which just means I reach out to people that need a friend and make sure that any visitors are welcome. When I'm at home, I love helping my mom with music time for the children.
