Hi I'm Emma

I grew up in Shanghai, China, I love musical theatre, I've been assigned to the Taiwan Taipei mission, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I lived in Shanghai, China, from seventh grade until I graduated from High School, and as a result, I've developed a deep love of travel and learning about or experiencing new cultures! I am obsessed with all things musical theatre and I have loved performing since before I can remember! I also aspire to be a Disney princess and LOVE all things Star Wars. My favorite season is fall because I am obsessed with wearing sweaters and spending time enjoying God's beautiful creations. I also have a thing for office supplies--starting a new planner is like Christmas morning! My family is probably the best, most adorable family in the world, and my four younger siblings are the best friends I could ever ask for. I just finished my freshman year of college, but I'm taking the next eighteen months off to serve a mission in Taipei, Taiwan!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have a testimony of my Savior's infinite love and His plan for me. I have seen the blessings that come into my life when I choose to have faith in Him and follow His teachings, and I have felt joy and peace I know can only come through following Him. This gospel provides such light and direction in my life, I know I would not be the same without it!

How I live my faith

A lot of what I do to participate in the church relates to music--I've performed many times at church meetings and activities, both solo and with larger groups, and in my last ward I was also in charge of choosing the music for our church meetings. I love the way music can so quickly bring the spirit and can help us express our love of the Savior! In a few months I will also have the opportunity to serve the people of Taiwan and teach them about the Savior when I leave on my mission!
