Hi I'm Fressia

I'm Nicaraguan, grew up in Miami, and am currently studying medicine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student, preparing to become a Cardiothoracic Surgeon. My favorite sports and games are Volleyball and Football, and I also love bowling, tennis, golf and ping-pong. Oh and air hockey! Family fun nights with Twister and Mormonopoly are usually among the most enjoyed. I like bicycling, going to the movies, or having movie nights at home with popcorn and pizza. I enjoy cooking and especially baking chocolate cake and chocolate chip cookies :) I hope to be able to travel the world someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I was 10 years old when Missionaries came knocking on my door. Little did I know that I was about to enter a brand new journey. When I first heard the Word of Wisdom, I knew in my heart that my body was a Temple that deserved to be loved and taken care of. After reading the Book of Mormon and praying I was the first in my family to baptize. One of my main goals is to get married and sealed with my family for all Eternity.

How I live my faith

I'm the First Counselor for the Primary President, and together we help take care of and teach children as little as 18 months til 11 years old while their parents assist Sunday School after the Sacrament meeting. Seeing the children and their little faces light up when they see us fills my heart with joy. Our classes include games and plays acting out stories from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, or learning about Baptism and Temples with puzzles and crossword searches, or creating care packages for Missionaries from our ward and showing each other we love one another. They've helped me increase my love for children and prepare myself to become a mother someday. I also teach Seminary classes weekly to the youth aged 14-17 and attend my own religious teachings classes on Saturday morning. As a voluntary teacher I've learned to appreciate my own professors and respect the time and dedication they give us.
