Hi I'm Karla

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Georgia, USA. I'm currently going to college in Mexico City to get my degree on Art History.

About Me

I'm a nice, friendly, and funny person. I'm 21.I love art and that's is what I'm going to college for. I hope to work at a big museum or gallery one day. I love painting, making jewelry, and currently working on how to crochet. It's not as easy as it looks. I like to listen to music, especially rock and pop. I love to do community service, and learn languages. I speak spanish and english fluently. I took french in high school I don't remember much of it haha, and I'm currently taking italian.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptist when I was 9 years old. Unfortunately, my dad is not a big believer, so we stopped going for a very long time. My mom tried to bring us back to the church, but somehow, didn't manage to keep us in church. She did, however, raised us within church morals. I wanted to continue going to church. I felt happy and safe. The Elders taught my family so much, but again, it was to stay when the head of my household was not a strong believer. About 3 years ago, my dad met this guy at work. He invited my dad to a party, and we all went. This party was a church party, and I felt it as a sign. I started going to the single adult meetings. After that, my whole family started going and kept on going to church. I'm so happy that I'm a member of the church. I know the church is true, and that I'm in the right place.

How I live my faith

When I started being an active member again, I tried to participate as much as I could in the activities that the Young Single Adults made, but I'm shy so I didn't go to too many. Then, in my branch I was called Secretary of Relief Society (women's group). That helped me strengthen my faith. I help create event to unite the sisters within my branch. It also helped me understand why it's important to share the gospel. I moved, so I'm no longer secretary, but the experience I've gain will stay with me always.
