Hi I'm Annie Robertson

I grew up in Upstate New York. I'm a BYU student studying neuroscience. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Logan, Utah, but grew up in diverse New York State. I'm currently studying neuroscience at Brigham Young University, with plans to attend med school. I'm passionate about civic engagement and social equality, and marched with other protesters in the Women's March this year. I love traveling, and spent last summer as an au pair in southern Finland. I've been called to serve as a missionary in the California Bakersfield mission, and I leave August 2nd!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel! The knowledge that I've gained has brought so much joy to my life, and has given me a purpose and direction that I wouldn't have otherwise. I love the messages of inclusion, of the Savior's love for all of His children, and the knowledge that I can be with my family forever. The gospel brings me peace and happiness, and that's something that I can't wait to share with others.

How I live my faith

I love the gospel, and I love to live my faith by serving others. I've had several different callings in my life, but right now I'm teaching the Sunbeams (3 year-old children) at church. This has been one of my favorite callings! I also love getting involved with community service projects. My ward has been involved with Feed My Starving Children for the past few years, which is a charity that packs meals for children in diverse places of the world where there is extreme poverty or famine. We do this as a coalition of several different religious groups in our community, which has made it a great way to get more involved. I'm also leaving soon to serve as a missionary in Southern California! I'm excited to serve the people there, and teach them about the church that has brought so much joy to my life.
