Hi! I'm Nick Jorgensen, a 24-year-old college student who was born in the rural town of Richfield, Utah, and is now attending Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I have been dealing with the symptoms of Crohn's disease for about two years now, and though I haven't completely found a method for bringing the disease into remission, I am fighting hard and keeping a positive attitude. I love to travel, read books and watch movies (especially the ones about Hobbits,) and spend time with good friends and family. I believe in living life in a way that makes one happy, despite the difficult challenges presented by Crohn's disease.
