Hi I'm Dawson

I grew up in Arizona my entire life. I love swimming and anything aquatic. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and I am attending Brigham Young University. I am studying Biochemistry for my undergrad. I love going to school and learning new things. I love listening and playing music. I learned how to play piano, ukulele, clarinet and oboe. I was a competitive swimmer for about half my life and i love doing anything aquatic.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised into a Mormon family, so I already knew a lot about the gospel. I stayed within the church because my family told me it was right and I trusted them. I kept doing so until i started becoming a teenager and i started to get into unhealthy addictions. I felt like i was in the depths of despair until i remembered that I can be forgiven and as well as change my life around. Through the help of my parents, my leaders and my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, i was able to get my life back in track and on the straight and narrow. I was able to feel peace and comfort and i never wanted those feelings to cease. I am a Mormon because i want to feel joy, happiness and comfort in this life. And everything that this church has taught has brought me those same feelings. I wouldn't be the same person without being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have served as a leader several times for boys and men that were my age at the time. I have been a teacher for my church for people of my age and younger kids. I have helped organize events for trips to the temple and fun leisure activities. I was able to visit with many people in my ward and support them in their personal trials. I try to always be there for everyone when they need a friend.
