I am a high school graduate, love hiking, an aspiring writer, and math nerd. Plus, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Arkansas, USA. I've just been accepted to Brigham Young University-Provo and I am really excited to start a very new part of my life.

The 53,000 LDS missionaries that are currently serving throughout the world are there to specifically serve those who are not a member of the LDS church. Show more Show less
