Hi I'm Rachel

I'm Half-Thai. I love playing the piano, puzzles, and musicals. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After growing up in Elk Grove, CA and spending about 2 years in college nearby, I decided to move to Los Angeles to continue going to school, but to also be in the city where acting is prominent. I love playing piano, musical theatre, and performing in general. I love Youtube and nail polish and Disneyland.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have grown to know it is true for myself. Being a member of this true church all my life, I have learned so much and one main thing is that we each are able to receive personal revelation. It is never something I was pressured to be. A Mormon is what I know, for myself, to be true. And it is not about what is logical, or trying to make sense of it all. It is about having an open heart enough to feel the Spirit, for that is what testifies that these things are true. We are so blessed to have Christ's church restored on the earth today. I am going to serve in the Thailand Bangkok mission. This is the same mission my dad served when he was a teenager, where my mom is from, and I begin on the date I was baptized. I know this is no coincidence but divine revelation that we are so blessed to have in our church. I am not going on a mission because people told me to. I am going because I know that this is the only true church on earth today. Through it, we learn of Jesus Christ and how we can use the gift of the Atonement for not only our salvation in the next life, but for our happiness, as well, in this life. We are blessed to know the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church each Sunday. I try to pray and read my scriptures as often as I can. I enjoy sharing my talents and using them for church purposes whenever possible. I was the musical director in my last ward, choosing the songs that would be sung in sacrament meeting each week. I also offer to play the piano in church whenever needed. I will be serving a mission for 18 months to display my faith to others and invite them also.
