Hi I'm Necolina Hubner

I am a military brat. I love traveling, learning languages and teaching English. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at BYU-Hawaii. I am studying TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages). Starting in January, I will be doing my student teaching in an immigrant school in Washington DC. I plan to start an online tutoring business so that I can travel the world and teach. Currently I am working on a project called WELL Africa that helps child laborers in the Ivory Coast get our of the fields and into the schools by helping the farmers improve their farming techniques without the use of children. I am from a large family, my parent and 5 sisters. All of us share a desire to travel and help others throughout the world. My hobbies include running, yoga, volleyball and scuba diving. I love living in Hawaii and wish I could live my whole life without ever experiencing another winter.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because my parents raised me that way, although I did think that way for much of my upbringing. I am a Mormon because I have learned for myself the truth of the doctrine and the wisdom direction that it brings in my life. One thing that I love the most about this church is that it encourages you to gain your own testimony and explore the doctrine for yourself. There is no authority in our church that will ask you to belief in their words alone. All they say and do comes with a confirmation of the spirit (a deep feeling of peace in your heart). To me this gospel makes sense, and when I follow the words of the scriptures and of our living prophet I find a sense of peace and direction that I know I could never find on my own.

How I live my faith

I have lived in a couple different countries and knowing that there are faithful members throughout the world brings me much peace and comfort. I find that regardless of culture and language, the gospel can bring much peace and enrichment into the lives of many. The scriptures and the words of my leaders have helped me to find my own testimony of the gospel which has proved to be vital for my emotional and spiritual well-being in times of trial in my life. It amazes me that the simple truths of this gospel has the ability to touch so many people from all walks of life and bring them joy and happiness. I am so grateful to have this gospel as part of my life.
