Hi I'm Leilani Ikahihifo

I am a Tongan, dancing is my passion, LBC is where I'm from & Christ is why I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I come from Los Angeles, California. I was born & raised in Long Beach, my family reside in Lancaster now. I have been blessed with amazing parents that are my everything! I have 6 siblings, a niece, a nephew, & another niece on the way :) I love spending time with my family. I make sure to make the best out of each moment I live with the people I love. I am very active and energetic when it comes to having fun. I love sports. I play volleyball, basketball, & football. One of my greatest talents God blessed me with is dancing. It is my passion! I love it so much I would even do it in my sleep! However, I have given up this talent of mine for 18 months to serve a mission in the Colorado, Colorado Springs. I attended El Camino Community College and after my mission I plan to go to any BYU that will accept me, stay true to my covenants, & dance my life away. I am a daughter, sister, auntie, missionary, & I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this is the Church of Jesus Christ! I grew up in this church all my life, but in order for me to find my own testimony I needed to find out if what my parents raised me in with this church if it is true. & so I did & my faith, humility, and gratitude grew for this restored gospel that I knew in my heart it is his truth and I could not deny the happy feeling I felt! Everyday I wake up happy and thankful for this Gospel because I now know the truth, I now understand how the fullness of the Gospel, & I now know my Savior Jesus Christ & Heavenly Father's love for me!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I have come to realize when forgetting of myself & focusing on how to be more Christlike the better person I become in living my faith. True faith is the way to the Lord & understanding life today & I could not be who I am today if it weren't for my Savior's example of selfless actions.
