Hi I'm Cynthia

I love school and learning new things. I play the violin, and I love to read and write. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently finished my first year of college and I plan on becoming an English Major. I love books and creative fiction. Some of my favorite authors are John Flanagan, Jane Austen, and fellow Mormon Shannon Hale! I've also played the violin ever since I was in elementary school and always have a special place in my heart for music. I grew up playing soccer and watching sports, and enjoy spending time outside and playing games with family. I think I'm happiest when I'm on the beach with a good book.

Why I am a Mormon

Through this church I have learned about who I am as a daughter of God, why I'm here, and what my potential is in this life and the next. I find true happiness when following the teachings of my Heavenly Father and striving to be the best person I can be. I know that by following these teachings and especially those in the Book of Mormon, I can continually grow close to my Savior and have the constant companionship of his Holy Spirit to guide and direct me on my path.

How I live my faith

My faith is a facet in every aspect of my life. It influences the way I interact and talk with others and how I treat all of Heavenly Father's children. It is a factor in the kind of media I choose to view and what I expose myself to. It is also a part of my lifestyle and affects what kind of activities I spend my time doing. One such activity is participating in visiting teaching. While living in the dorms at my college I was assigned to visit a few girls that lived on my floor, and was able to serve them and build strong friendships with them over the semester. I have also had several callings or assignments where I have been First Counselor in the young women's presidency, and even just an usher to help students find seats in our large church conference building. No matter how I serve my fellow ward members or the community, I always feel strengthened and blessed because of it.
