Hi I'm Victoria Morris-Cartagena

" I have lived in 3 countries. I speak 4 languages. I am a computer programmer and business woman. I'm a Mormon."

About Me

I grew up in a multi-ethnic home where we listen to Virginian bluegrass while we make Puerto Rican desserts. I am the oldest of three children, and I am a student studying Computer Science and Asian Studies with a minor in Business Management. Since I was little, I learned very quickly the value of communication; therefore, I have made it a life goal to study the use of communication through the means of spoken language and computers. Within the past ten years, I have have studied English, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Tagalog, and have studied a variety of computer programming languages. Having traveled the world, I have been researching the use of communication within a variety of different cultures and people, and hope to help bring better, quicker means of communicating throughout the world.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young girl, I grew to love the Lord as I received answers to important life questions. I wondered, "Who am I? What is my purpose in life? Where am I going? Is there a God? Am I important?" By attending church, praying to my Father in Heaven, and searching the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon, I received beautiful, clear answers to my questions. As I acted in faith and followed the Lord's commandments, I felt my testimony grow as I discovered the truth for myself. I did not say that my wisdom came to me all at once, but rather I was granted the answers according to the Lord's time. He is the perfect teacher; therefore, he waits till we are most ready to receive the answer.

How I live my faith

Thoughout my life, I have been able to live my faith by teaching the children, leading the youth, and helping the music board for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Outside of my church, I have tried to aid my community by sponsoring blood drives, English teaching classes, Christmas hospital fundraisers, and food drives to help those in need. In the end, through my participation in these church or community events, I have been privileged to see the beauty and overwhelming joy the restored gospel brings into people's lives; therefore, when I turned twenty-one, I decided to put my education on hold and go serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am now currently serving as a full-time missionary, a representative of Jesus Christ for 18 months. I want nothing more than to share the beautiful message of the gospel to all those who will hear. I want to bring the world the Truth.
