Hi I'm Melissa!

I'm a mother, musician, and mechanical engineer. I'm Egyptian. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a new mother staying at home with my baby while my husband goes to work each day. I have a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering. I love creating music, whether it be on the piano, violin, or singing, it doesn't really matter. I dream of traveling the world a little bit at a time.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was born, both of my parents were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They both lived and still live lives committed to being Christ-like. When I was nearing the age of 8, they asked me if I would like to be baptized and become a member of this church. As an 8 year-old, I understood that there was a lot of happiness and joy found in the things I learned at church, so I decided to be baptized. Since then, I have had times of great despair as well as times of great joy. In both circumstances, I feel the same thing, gratitude for this church and what I gain from being a member of it. When I find myself in despair, I know that I have a loving Father in Heaven who is just waiting to give me the comfort I need. Time and time again, I've seen that as I pray, I receive exactly what I need, which is not always what I want at the time, but always seems to be even better in the long run of things. Likewise, in the times when I feel great joy, I feel gratitude for all the blessings Heavenly Father has bestowed upon me. He is a kind and wise Father and a best friend. I know that I am His daughter and because his son, Jesus Christ, came to this Earth, lived a perfect life, atoned for the sins of all the world, and sealed it all with his precious blood, I have a way to become the person God intends me to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by creating a loving and peaceful atmosphere at home for my husband and I to raise our daughter and any future children we are blessed with. I try to be kind and friendly to those I meet Mormon or not. At church I help where I can, whether it be bringing food to an activity, setting up or taking down chairs, teaching lessons at church to children, visiting other women in their homes, or simply just attending meetings.
