Hi I'm Jacob Edwardson

I was born in Utah, but moved around a bit and found myself in Fresno, Ca where I've spent most my life. I'm also Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school senior. There I played basketball, water polo, and swim. I am working two jobs in order to pay for my mission that I will be serving in Cincinnati Ohio. I am interested in becoming a doctor specializing in the emergency room. I love to play sports, watch TV, hang out with friends, and read the scriptures. I live with my mom and dad, and I am the oldest of 4. I have one brother and two sisters.

How I live my faith

I am the second counselor in the class I'm in and I've served in the presidency in all classes that I've been in. I love to read the scriptures and share what I read with my family and my friends. I am completing my fourth and final year of seminary and I have completed the Stake President's challenge each year. In that challenge one must have 90% attendance, memorize all 25 scripture mastery's, read every day for that year, and complete the book that you are studying.
