Matt grew up in southern Utah. He is currently a senior studying Neuroscience with plans to start medical school fall of 2022. His interest in the institute arose after listening to all 52 of Neal A. Maxwell’s general conference talks on his mission in Ecuador. This thoughtful and devout approach to faith resonated with Matt. He is fascinated with applying the ongoing restoration to a rapidly changing world—a world which needs what the gospel of Jesus Christ has to offer. [2021]
