Hi I'm Mariana Keele

I'm loud, friendly, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love dancing (: I like all sorts of dancing, like Latin, Lyrical, Jazz, Hip-Hop! I also love hanging out with my friends. I like to go on hikes, camping, swimming, out dancing! I also am very chill so I don't mind staying home and watching movies, cooking, sleeping (I LOVE SLEEPING), watching sports...almost anything! (: I speak Spanish and English! I like hanging out with my mom and spending time with people that are always happy! I love traveling and performing! I'm in a touring dance group that goes all performing dances from many different countries and I love it. I love music..but usually just chill music! (:

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Catholic. I never really went to church as a child but occasionally my family and I would go to mass but didnt really know much. The missionaries came into our life when I was 11 but it took me 2 years to want to be baptized. I was hesitant because I wanted to live the fun life with my friends through high school, drink, smoke, date around, and be a happy teenager. I didnt want to have any restrictions and this church seemed to have too many. I finally realized that life would lead me nowhere and only make me be a person I didnt want to be. I realized that happiness came from being with my family, making good friends, developing talents, and being able to help others! I have been happy since I made the decission to follow the plan of happiness (: I also Love knowing what I believe in and gaining a testimony for myself about something new often!

How I live my faith

I like to live my faith by being an example to people around me! I like to bear my testimony through dance as well, I learned that you can bear your testimony by dancing and sharing with others your talents! I'm in a dance group where we share what we know through dance and singing, it's really fun! (: I also like to serve others and do everything I can to help everyone around me. Heavenly Father gives me so much that I owe it to him to serve his children every chance I get! One of the easiest ways for me to live my faith is by always having a smile on my face; I'm very happy to have this gospel and know what I know so I like to smile at everyone (: If my smile can make someone else smile that makes me happy! (:
