Hi I'm Hunter

I am happy to have grown up in the church. I grew up in the valley of Arizona. I rode my bike to school everyday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I was a small kid, I always collected rocks; I was fascinated by them and I wanted to either be a scientist or a chemist because they seemed super awesome and fun. Now I am a programmer, and it is just as fun as anything I had ever imagined. Although I am not a professional, I love to code and engineer with just about anything I can get my hands on. I am going to go to BYU Idaho to improve my computer software engineering skills. I love adventure! An example of this is when I went to AFY up in Idaho. Being there was one of the best weeks of my life. I absolutely love math. I spend probably too much time sometimes trying to create random things using only math. My favorite dessert is freeze dried ice cream called 'astronaut ice cream.' I love the TV show The Flash and above a lot of things, love fire.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my grandmothers are converts to the church. I am so ever grateful for the joy that they have brought me and extended family (to give an idea, I have over 60 cousins). My parents raised me in the church and I do not take it for granted. When I was very little, I accepted everything my parents told me, and that was good. But before I was baptized, I made sure that I was making the right choice. I did this when I read the Book of Mormon and prayed if it was true. Even though I was young, I knew in my heart that this Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was good. So I was baptized. And have loved the gospel with all my heart and will for the rest of my life.

How I live my faith

For my senior year of high school, I was honored to be called to lead the young men my age at our church meetings every Sunday. At around the same I was called in Seminary to help the teacher by being president of my class hour. I was nervous as I started to help the young kids my age progress and grow, but I gained a knowledge of what it is to lead. I thought everyday about what I could do better and I found myself using Christ's principles to help guide me when I needed it. My service in those two callings helped me grow to be more like Christ by leading by example and helping those in need. Now I am called to go on a mission. And I could not be more ecstatic about going even though I do not know what it will exactly be like. I want to do nothing more than to bring light and happiness to other people.
