Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Kenya. I am a sophomore in college. I study ways to create new antibiotics. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just completed my freshman year in college. I am majoring in Biochemistry and Microbiology, and worked in a research lab fighting bacteria against each other to find new antibiotics to treat diseases that are immune to all current medications. In my spare time, I enjoy playing chess and football in my spare time. I played football and tennis in high school. I love hiking and camping.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is true. I didn't have a very strong testimony growing up, and it only hindered me from becoming the best I could be. Now that I faithfully attend my church meetings and obey the commandments, my life is more full of joy than ever before.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I usually spend most of my time doing my own family history and helping others with theirs. I also am a home teacher with my father, and occasionally administer sacrament or blessings when needed.
