Hi I'm Kate

I've lived in California, England, New Mexico, Texas, and soon to be Sweden. I'm a dancer, actor, and writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in several places throughout my life, and I hope to live in many more in the years to come. I have an enormous extended family that lives all across the United States, but there are only 5 of us in my immediate family. I grew up dancing in a Russian ballet studio, and dancing was my life for years and years. I transitioned out of dance and into theatre my sophomore/junior years of high school, but plan on pursuing both when I go to school at Sarah Lawrence College in NY. Performance is very near to my heart and I believe it is one of the things that ties us together as people. I have also written my whole life. I write books and poetry, and at my core I am a storyteller. I think there's something so human about sharing stories with others, whether it be through dance or acting or the written word. In addition to this, I'm also a venture scout and I LOVE backpacking. I've been on three backpacking treks at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, including ROCS and Rayado individual treks, and I worked there on staff this past summer. There's something so satisfying about pushing yourself physically to travel to beautiful places that you can only see if you hike there. The outdoors are very important to me & I plan to work at Philmont again in the future because it's such an excellent environment to meet wonderful people and see God's country in the mountains and outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I was raised mormon, but also because I have given it a lot of thought and prayer and it just makes sense to me. It feels right and it gives me joy, so of course I'm a mormon.

How I live my faith

I was raised Mormon by a religious mother, though my father has been inactive in the church my whole life. Because of this, I was able to grow up learning from their respective good examples while simply living religion (or lack thereof) differently. I've always been involved with youth activities and camps, and I've always gone to church on sundays. I've never been very loud about religion, but I love having religious discussions with anyone who asks, and I generally prefer to just live my religion rather than talk about it.
