Hi I'm Shantewa

I'm a student. I'm an actress. I'm a Yerd (yearbook nerd). I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the eighth child in a family of twelve. I am right in the middle of eight boys which is crazy and fun all at the same time. When I was younger I thought it was some kind of curse, being teased by all those boys but now that I'm older I know Heavenly Father knew exactly what he was doing. I absolutely love my family! I'm a junior in high school. I love acting and being dramatic! I have been in six plays so far and I love the adrenaline of being onstage in front of people. I'm also the Student Life Editor in my Yearbook class. I really love photography and putting together layouts for the yearbook. Basically I love to be happy and have fun with my friends and family!

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I was born and raised in a family of Mormons but I also have learned for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on the Earth today. I've read the Book of Mormon cover to cover and the spirit testified to me that it is true. The Church also brings so much happiness to my life! Every time I walk into church on Sunday morning all my problems just fade away and I can feel the spirit so strong. I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just going through my day trying to be like Jesus. I'm not perfect not by a long shot but I try my best to be an example of the believers.
