Hi I'm Tatiana

I grew up in California. I am a dancer, singer, and piano/ukulele player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am college student working on my Communications Major and my dance Minor (trying to double-major). Currently I work for fast food and I absolutely love to babysit. Since the age of eight, I have danced ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop, modern and Polynesian. In the tenth grade, I was the captain and coach of my high school's All Female Hip-Hop Team and I was a part of my community Hip-Hop team known as Emanon Dance Crew for two years. I began to teach piano at the age of sixteen. In my spare time, if I am not reading a great book, I am outside all day. I love to play sports and I love to bake.

Why I am a Mormon

My father was a Catholic and my mother was a Methodist. My father converted first and he converted my mother. So, I was born into the Church. For a long time, I relied on my mother's testimony and how she received it. It was enough for me to say that I had a testimony because my mother had a testimony, but I knew this was not enough. Throughout high school, it was very hard to distinguish myself as a Latter-day Saint because I so desperately wanted to fit in with everyone else. I became lost and I had no desire to attend church because it was considered a routine in my mind. During my first year of college, I began to sink into an ultimate low in terms of Church and I had long forgotten about the idea of a testimony. When I returned home, I felt a hole in my heart that could not be filled with worldly pleasures. For five years, I stopped praying personally, until my second week home from college. Guilt and anger was what I had felt as I complained to and asked forgiveness of my Heavenly Father and my Savior. I felt so much peace and comfort that night. Trials began to seem overwhelming after that night, but I knew I was on the right path and that I would be able to withstand all future trials, no matter the size. My testimony has increased and I have never been happier in my life.Being a member of this church has brought joy to my life.

How I live my faith

My home ward was the Oxnard 3rd Ward, but I am currently a part of the Camarillo Young Single Adult Ward. My church callings: 1. Substitute chorister and pianist. I also play for my ward's choir. 2. Ward Missionary. I am also a Visiting Teacher. It is so important for me to become acquainted and familiar with everyone in my ward. I love to be around them because they make me happy. In our communities, we try to create fun, positive, and uplifting activities/events; whether we are tying fleece blankets, playing games, wrapping presents or watching movies with one another.
