Hi I'm Shayla

I mostly grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. I attended BYU-Idaho and absolutely loved it! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very outgoing person. I have been into all kinds of sports and activities. I attended BYU-Idaho and plan on going back after my mission. I was a lifeguard for about 4 years and loved learning about first aid and health. I love to dance and sing. I really enjoy being active and staying fit.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a part of the church. I was raised in a family where we go every sunday. In high school, I really wasnt sure about my life and which direction I was going. I stuggled to find my place with my friends, in the social life, and in myself. I really tried to understand what the church meant to me in my life. I soon began to hang out with the wrong kind of people and started to lose myself and who I really wanted to be. I began to feel unhappy with my life and not wanting to live my life in such a way where I wouldnt be satisfied in myself. I started to pray really hard to my Heavenly Father and asked for his help. I could instantly see the blessings in my life with the people that He put in my path to help me see how I could live in such a way where I could be happy with myself. I was able to turn my life over to my Father in heaven and I have seen the blessings in my life as I have chosen this.

How I live my faith

I really enjoy being with kids. I taught little kids from the ages of 3-5 years old how to swim and how to dance. I have been teaching children for 2 years now and it is my favorite thing to do. I help out with my church in organizing activities for the youth and really enjoy being a part of them.
