I am a young engineer, author, and aspiring med student. I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was born intersex, but didn’t receive treatment until I reached adulthood. I approach the world with an insatiable curiosity and have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and exploration. I tackle every puzzle with thorough research and a scientific mindset. In college, I sought out an answer to the question of whether God exists, and the Holy Spirit witnessed to me that God does indeed exist, and that God had been present in my life from the beginning. After bouncing between churches in a search to find the right one, I joined the LDS Church, which was the best decision I’ve ever made. Before I joined the Church, the Holy Spirit guided me in the same way to seek medical attention for my condition. The decision I made to “transition” to live as the gender that aligned with my spirit was probably the second best decision I’ve ever made. I couldn’t have done it without my parents’ love and support. They are my biggest allies. I consider the medical challenges I’ve gone through in my life to be gifts from God which have served to make me stronger. I also consider my responsibilities as a Priesthood holder to have helped me develop my role as a man in society and serve the Lord to my fullest capacity. My life is dedicated to serving God, my family, and America. Read my whole story here.
I wrote a book to help other young individuals find a relationship with God. My hope is that this book will strengthen relationships and help communities, families, and friends interact with intersex or transgender people in a God-centered way.
