Hi I'm Charlie Masino

I grew up playing any sport I could. Basketball and football became my favorites. I coach Special Olympics. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in a family of 3 sisters where we all are busy all the time. Whether we are on the basketball court, football field, in the dance studio, or in the pool we are always giving one hundred percent. Despite our busy schedules we never fail to hang out together and remain close all the time. Sports have been my passion my whole life and have taught me so many life lessons that I would not have learned without them. But the number one thing that I have learned from sports is that they are not what is most important in life. I have had the privilege of coaching for the special olympics in numerous sports for the past 6 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because first off my father decided to join the church in college and eventually married my mother who raised me in the church. That part I didn't have control over, but the reason I am a mormon now I do have control over. I am a Mormon because of the many experiences I have had that let me know that Heavenly Father is watching over me. I have had some difficult experiences in my life that would have been ten times more difficult without the Gospel in my life. It has kept me on the right path and away from the many terrible things that the world can get exposed to. I am also a Mormon because I love my family and I want to be with them forever just like our Heavenly Father has promised each one of us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always striving to be an example to those around me. As a very well known person in my High School and community I constantly felt as though everyone was watching my every move waiting for me to slip up. Instead of getting annoyed I decided to embrace the situation as an opportunity to be an example and influence as many people as possible. I constantly look for opportunities to serve the people around me. I was called to be apart of our stake youth committee my senior year. This calling was to be part of a committee of seniors that planned all the activities for our stake youth. I loved every second because I got to meet so many new people and had so many opportunities to serve them.
