Hi I'm Brian

I am from Connecticut. I am Dominican. I work in a mortgage department and attend BYU-Idaho and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like performing stand-up comedy and playing basketball. I am good with numbers. I grew up as the youngest of five living with a single mother and a home full of sisters. I began attending college in September of 2012 at Brigham Young University in Idaho. All my life I have always enjoyed speaking in front of people. I was lucky enough to speak at my high school graduation in front of almost 1000 people which was amazing. I enjoy being from Connecticut despite no one knowing too much about it. It's great!

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the church when the missionaries came to my home as a child. I always enjoyed hearing their messages and as they taught me more I made the decision to be baptized when I was 10. I have felt a strong confirmation that the things that I have been taught are true and as a result I want to serve The Lord as those missionaries that baptized me did. I plan on serving my mission in Ukraine later in 2013 and I cannot wait to teach of this gospel that has changed my life forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following all of the teachings and messages given by Jesus Christ and His prophet that is on the earth today. I do my best to simply do the next right thing. I act kindly to others, greet them if I can, and try to brighten up their day. I am from an area that does not have too many members of the church and I still find ways to get along with everyone. I simply let them know my values and beliefs up front and go from there. I know that the sacrifices that I have made will be rewarded to me later on in the next life. I do mess up but that is a part of being human. I just do my best to pick myself up and carry on afterwards.
