Hi I'm Leslie

I am from Denver, CO, I am a deaf (hard of hearing) musician and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a goofy and upbeat young person- ya... I said young person. I am a dork; I love math and music. I am a member of the deaf/ hard of hearing community and I use American Sign Language. I am able to speak very well as I was deafened later in my life but I love being able to function in both worlds. I am mixed race- black, white and latina. I went to college and have my undergrad in Mathematics (super nerd and proud). I also love waterpolo, played in school and am still a bit addicted.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church a few years ago. It was the best decision that I have ever made. In a lot of ways I am/ was not the perfect example of the mormon stereotype, I have tattoos and had piercings. In a lot of ways, I was met with a lot of discouraging remarks from friends when I joined but that wasn't the case. The people of the church in pretty much every case are just so loving. I have learned so much about the love the Christ has to offer me through the people in His church. Its pretty much amazing!

How I live my faith

I do my best to go to church regularly. I know that sometimes its hard to make it all the time but when i go, my heart feels so full of love and refreshed.
