Hi I'm Kathleen

I am a college student. I attended a performing arts high school. Dance is my major. I am mormon.

About Me

I love to dance. I have danced since I was three years old. I have moved around from studios and ended up at a performing arts high school. I now am attending a university with hopes of getting my degree in dance. I have competed in various states for dance and I have had to work to help support my dreams to dance. My family is not wealthy, and I have experienced a unique life. My family lost everything when I was very young. Regaining our footing is a continual challenge, but solid ground is building. Hard work is all I have ever known and where I thrive.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up a member of the church, but the reason I have stayed true to the church is because I know that my Savior lives. Heavenly Father has heard my prayers and given me very direct answers. The only reason my family is still together is because of its truthfulness. The public eye tore my father down and ruined my father's and family's reputation. My mother and family has been made strong through our Savior, Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father knows the truth behind the lies that others may create. He knows each family and all of us individually. Blessings come to those who work hard for the right reasons and towards the right goals. I love being a latter-day saint. I know what goals and reasons are right because I am a member and I study the words of my Savior and Heavenly Father. If I did not have this light in my life my family would have crumbled under the weight of the world.

How I live my faith

I express my love for the gospel of Jesus Christ through my dancing. Dance has the ability to help people feel the love that He provides us. Dance has been taken to levels that are degrading to our bodies, and that is not why we have been given the gift of dance. Dance is to bring joy and happiness. Dance can bring people to a new love of who they are what life means to them. Our bodies are gifts from our Father in Heaven. Dance that invites the presence of our Savior is beautiful. I dance because I want others to feel my love for our Savior through my movement.

What is being a Mormon like?
