Hi I'm Catalina.

I'm a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I'm a student and an engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

While I'm an engineer by education, I'm an artist at heart. I'm driven by passion for life and learning. At the end of the day, when all my classes are done i enjoy taking pictures of the world around me or trying to share it on a canvas. Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved drawing and painting. There's so much beauty in the world, I love trying to capture it so I can share with others. But I chose to get an education in engineering because of my love of solving problems and doing hard things. I enjoy helping people solve their problems and coming up with better ways for people to do things.

Why I am a Mormon

A lot of the credit goes to my parents. For teaching me what really matters in life from the moment I was born. I treasure my family, even through the rough spots, with all my heart. I am grateful for all of their love. And through this gospel and living its principles, I know that I can be with them FOREVER. Forever? Meaning what? Eternity. I believe in the plan of happiness, the plan of salvation. That is to say that if I do my best here on earth, and put my trust in the Lord, He will bless me to live forever with the people I love most. So many times, that's been the thing that saved me, gave the the strength to overcome and to be a better person. So I'm a Mormon because I love having the gospel in my life and the principles it teaches me that can help me with with my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

Even though my parents can't make me wake up for church anymore, I attend a singles ward while I'm going to school. I make it a priority, no matter what work I have left to do, things I'd like to do, or sleep to catch up on, to go to church every Sunday. Its important for me to learn more about the gospel. Its a very different spirit that teaches me while I'm at church that can't teach me everything while I study my scriptures and pray at home. Not to mention, I'm given that opportunity to renew special promises I've made with my loving Father in Heaven. But when I'm not at church, being a mormon is still important to me: I try to be an example of what I believe in all the things I do. I know life gets hard, but its important to remember who you are, who you really are: A child of God. And I know that He never gives us more than we can handle, never gives us more that we need. He loves us so much that he wants us to grow more than we'd ever imagine we could and gives us that chance EVERY DAY.
