Hi I'm Tomas Isaac Alvarez

I'm an athlete I run track for the Junior Olympics! I'm from California I love to have a great time and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Tomas Alvarez I'm 18 years old and I'm going on my mission to Brazil! Some of my hobbies are running, playing football, hanging out with friends and last would be traveling and taking pictures. Before I planned to go on my mission I was going to attend Fresno State University and run track for them. Now I have two years to truly decide for myself what I really want to be and what college I want to attend. One of my big interest are meeting new people. I'm not your average Joe I have a tendency to open up to myself. Probably because I'm not a shy guy. I have an interest in photography and running because if I'm sad or having to many things on my mind it lets me escape this world and makes me feel completely different.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it a choice I knew that was right for me. It feels good to go to church every week because if I miss one week my whole week is thrown off. It also is the only true church that makes sense with the life after death part its all perfect to me. I love how this church does not pay anyone to preach its all through volunteer work and peoples hearts and desire. I'm a Mormon also because my grandma is the pioneer of the Mormon church and I respect her so much for that and she is my example to me. The Mormon church also is a friendly environment and everyone there is nice.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith truly states what kind of young man I am. I participate in Boy Scouts, the young men, and home teaching. I have to set the example in the area I live because I have many young boys looking up to me. Therefore I try and do the best I can. I live my faith at school by being an example by not cursing, not cheating on test, being kind to students and teachers. I do organize activities for the youth in my church. I had to plan at least two activities a month wither they were a fun activity or a spiritual activity.
