Hi I'm Canaan Kwok

I grew up in Hong Kong, I'm a dancer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Hong Kong. I have a happy and lovely family. My parents met in the church when they were teenagers. My brother, Caleb with the coolest personality, is now serving as a missionary in Oakland, California. I love my family; they are precious to me! I am a professional dancer and event organizer. Since the age of four, I have been learning a variety of dance style including Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary Dance, Musical Theatre, Chinese Dance, Social Dance, and World Dance etc. I have studied at BYU-Hawaii and graduated from BYU-Idaho in 2010. I have continued my study and obtained a MFA in Dance in Hong Kong. I have moved to London recently as building up an eternal family is my greatest desire and my fiance is now studying his master degree in University College of London. Yet, I believe my journey as a dancer will begin again here in London. And I am very grateful for it. I love baking for I am a fan of anything to do with flour and eggs. I also love watching movies. Like many other girls, chick flick is my favorite.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born under the covenant as my parents converted to the church when they were young. But I have obtained my own testimony of the gospel and faith throughout all these years. I know that our Heavenly Father loves me and He hears my prayers. I can always tell Him about my desire and discuss my issues with Him. He will guide me and answer me in different ways. And I know this as it has happened to me many times in the past. I may not know the best plan for myself, but I know that our Father in Heaven does have a plan for us because He loves each one of us.

How I live my faith

I love the gospel, I love this belief my parents have taught me since I was small. It is a plan about happiness and love. I have lived my faith through sharing my gift from our Heavenly Father and serving the others throughout all these years. I have come to understand that dancing is a medium of worshipping our Father in Heaven when I was studying in BYU-Idaho, which led me to desire to share the light of Christ through my talent of dancing. For dance is not a popular culture in Hong Kong among the members, I have tried to use my talent by organizing a youth dance programme in the church called "Dancing Under the Light" so as to share the light of Christ through dancing. The experience of sharing my talents with the youth was one of the most marvelous things in my life. And I look forward to more opportunities for me to served in London or anywhere else I will be settling in.
