Hi I'm Samantha Nusipepa Taala

I am a Samoan and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am attending the most wonderful university in the world. With its diverse population of students representing over 70 countries and given the opportunity to excel in both spiritual and academic learning, I have grown to love the university even more. Because of my love for computers, I am majoring in IT and hope to succeed in the field. I love sports, but I watch more than I play. I love the gospel. It's the one thing that has kept me on the right track.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church my whole life. I have been tossed and turned by the storms of life, but my knowledge of what I've learned in the gospel, helps me get back on my feet. I find great comfort and peace in the gospel of Jesus Christ. With the gospel, I have gained a greater understanding of the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ and that there's so much more to life than just life on earth. With the gospel, I have also been assured that my Heavenly Father loves and cares for me and wants me to return to live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I love working with children. I have had the golden opportunity of helping plant a testimony in a child's heart. I love how they would share their pure thoughts and takes on life. I love planning activities for the little ones. Whether it be spiritual or temporal, the children always make every lesson fun. One of my favorite times with the little ones is singing time. I really enjoy playing the piano and hearing my primary children sing enthusiastically. They are such gifts. They give me something to look forward to every Sunday.
