Hi I'm Makayla.

I'm a sixteen year old community college student. I'm an actress. I'm a violinist. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I enjoy spending time with my family when I get the chance. Most of my day is filled with highschool work and the rest devoted to family/friends, church, and my hobbies. I'm fascinated with nature and science, from macroscopic studies, such as astronomy, (who doesn't like stargazing?) to microscopic studies, mostly based on biology and chemistry. Basically, i'm a nerd. My goals are finishing my personal progress, obtaining my driver's license, and eventually "growing up" to be an orthodontist. I'm a violinist, I'm an optimistic, I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a child of the covenant, meaning i was born into the church. In my life, with the Gospel, I've gained a stronger testimony and courage through Jesus Christ. I believe that because of my relationship with the Savior, I'm a happier, more loving person. The church isn't there to scold us, but to help us, and with this in mind I can admit my imperfections more willingly and prepare myself to be a better person so that I might live with my Heavenly Father and his son again.

How I live my faith

One of the things I love about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is how inclusive we are. I've recently been called to serve with Youth Council, meaning I get to help plan and put together dances at our Stake Building. Being a part of something always makes me feel wanted, even needed. Dances have always been a great way for me to make new friends, and some of my best friends I've met because of dancing at church activities. Besides that, I play yearly on the Young Women's volleyball team. I look forward to the season, so i can see my friends not only at church and weekly activities, but also at games. We even get to compete against each other sometimes. Since I'm so involved with, and therefore associated to the church, I try to be an example to non-members that being a Mormon is not all restrictions and work, it can be a whole lot of fun, too.
