Hi I'm Taygun Loader

I was born in Salt Lake City and have lived in Utah my whole life. I love to sing and to go camping. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love to sing. I've been a part of a couple of choirs and have even started an acapela band with a couple of my friends. I know how to play piano and am self taught on guitar and ukulele. I also enjoy writing songs and poetry. One day, I hope to be able to publish my work or produce my music for people to enjoy. I also enjoy camping with my friends on the weekends. We love to go up to the mountains, start a fire, and look at the stars from our hammocks. I am also a huge fan of reading. Harry Potter, The Inheritance Saga, and Work And The Glory are my favorite books of all time. Right now, I am accepted to Brigham Young University and I am planning on attending there in fall 2018. I plan on studying chemistry there so that I can go to medical school after to become an anesthesiologist.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always been a Mormon and I honestly feel it is the truest church on this Earth. Why else would I sacrifice two of my "golden years" as a young adult to go out and serve the Lord. I know that what I believe is the truth, which is why I want to share it. It makes me happy and it makes me strong enough to bear the burdens of life. It gives me peace and tranquility when the my world occasionally turns upside down. Most of all, I'm a Mormon because we believe in second chances. I believe that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I can be forgiven of my transgressions and faults, so that I can live with my family for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best example I can to those around me. I try my best to be friendly and outgoing so that people feel comfortable talking to me. I also enjoy serving others in my community and elsewhere. My Eagle Scout project was to collect toy donations to replace old, dirty toys in nurseries around my town. I also accepted a calling from my bishop to supervise and manage the cleaning of our church building when I was 16. That was a really unique and faith building experience because it taught me the value of hard work and dedication to something, even if I had to stand alone to do it.
