Hi I'm McKenzie Sampson

I'm ambitious and love to learn. I'm a dancer, musician, and aspiring engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern Utah and am the oldest of five siblings. Growing up I was really involved in piano, violin, ballet, and student leadership. I recently moved across the country to study chemical-biological engineering in Massachusetts. I will soon be in Concepcion Chile serving as a missionary. In my free time I love to bake, watch podcasts about science, explore my surroundings, and shop. In a few years I hope to have a career in drug delivery design and research for cancer treatment.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel peace and God's love as I live the gospel of Jesus Christ. By following Jesus Christ and relying on His Atonement, I am able to cope with my challenges and have hope for the future. I find strength in knowing I'm here for a reason, I have a limitless potential, and Heavenly Father wants to be involved in my daily life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying and studying the Book of Mormon every day. I try to treat everyone around me as Christ would treat them. I serve in my church by planning weekly activities for our Family Home Evening. I will soon be serving a mission where I will be teaching people about Jesus Christ and how they can follow Him.
