My name is Kayson Shurtz and I come from a family of six. I have two sisters and one brother. I am the second child in my family. I was born and raised in Utah and really like it here. Growing up I have always had a love for learning new things. I have always enjoyed attending school. I have had a great experience attending BYU. I have found that engineering really is the best field of study for me. I am excited to take part in this project and think it will be a great experience. I have a great love for sports and being in the outdoors. Fly fishing is one of my pastimes. The past two summers I participated in an engineering internship for the local Forest Service. My favorite activity of the present is golf. I think I like it so much because it is so challenging. I also like to play basketball, which I played for my high school team. I still try to get out and play whenever I can spare a little time. My little brother and sister play and now and I really enjoy going to their games.
I visited Mexico for the first time a few weeks ago. My family and I came down on a cruise where we visited Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. I am excited to visit Guadalajara and Zacatecas. I unfortunately do not know how to speak Spanish so you will have to be patient with me and I will do my best to learn some of the basics.
