Hi I'm Shaney

I'm a ballerina, I love clothes and shoes, I love to sing, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of four children, and the only girl. I am currently a student at Brigham Young University. I have been a ballet dancer my whole life. I love to be with my friends and family. I love to read. I love the classic Disney movies. And I love fashion.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life. I grew up in the church, as did both my parents. However, when I was about 10, I realized I needed to have my own testimony. As I have studied, prayed, and participated in church activities, I have realized that the Gospel is what makes me truly happy. I still have bad days now and again, but I know that as long as I stick to what I truly believe in, I can have eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

For me, the bottom line is, how can I be more like Jesus Christ? Christ is the perfect example, and as I have studied His life, I have been trying to live by His teachings. High school was hard, particularly the constant opposition and temptation that was being thrown in my face. However, as I prayed for guidance and as I stayed close to the Spirit, I made it. I also had friends who shared my same values and standards, and we were able to help each other. I know that I need to be a good example to others, and I need to be someone that others can look to for help and guidance.
