Hi I'm Mariah Kuster

I'm a traveller, I'm a video maker and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I'm Mariah, I was born in Brazil and lived there until I was 18 then lived in Venice for 6 months and now I've been leaving in one of the most exciting cities in the world for 5 years, London! And loving it! I'm very Brazilian, love Brazilian music, dance, the beautiful country and the amazing weather there comparing to London. But living in London brought me so many exciting experiences and people that I could not imagine myself living anywhere else right now. I danced flamenco (the traditional Spanish dance) in Brazil and I absolutely love it, it's one of my passions in life, one of the ways that I express myself best through movements. I like designing and sewing my clothes and I love producing videos! I also like playing the piano and want to learn the violin. The producing and editing videos all started with the idea of making a video for my friend's birthday and I absolutely loved it, so far I produced another 4, but ideas just don't stop coming and I'm now applying for a media course! I have a wonderful family, a musician brother and an amazing and caring sister and I love spending time with them, especially Sunday's dinner where we get to seat down at the table and just talk and laugh. I love my friends and I'm always trying to make them laugh as well, because life just becomes better when you're happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I discovered, I know after some situation and feelings that by living more like Jesus Christ lived we find the true happiness and a bigger purpose to our lives. It is not only about being happy for the moment, it's is a constant happiness, it is an eternal happiness together with our family and our loved ones. I am a mormon because I truly believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and doing good to all men. I believe in the Book of Mormon as being the word of God together with the Bible. I am a mormon because I love having a prophet today to guide me and bring me closer to God with modern guidances. I feel so lucky to know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he gave his life defending the things he believed was true and that I became to know to be true too. I am a mormon because I know that by praying, we receive answers and that God is closer to us then we sometimes think. He loves us and he will protect and point us to the best directions in life. I know that the church of Jesus Christ of the latter-day saints is true and my life is blessed every day because I chose to live what I know it's true!

How I live my faith

I live my faith bit by bit every day, with decisions I make like read the scriptures every night to bring me closer to Jesus Christ and his teachings. By going to church every Sunday and by helping other people, it doesn't matter if it is my family or a mother with the pram in the busy London underground! I also try my hardest to learn a lot and to live in a way that I can have the best family I can one day. I want to be a great mother to my children and teach them how to be good people, because I think the world always needs people who are willing to do their best and make a difference in whatever they do. And I also try to make a difference in people's life by showing them how much I love them with little notes and kinder egg! So if you want to make me happy, just give me a kinder and life will be so much better!
