Hi I'm Amanda

I grew up in the beautiful islands of Hawaii. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently attended BYU-Hawaii. I'm majoring in Pre-Professional Biology and love to join the medical field once I graduate. While I was attending BYU-Hawaii I worked at the Polynesian Culture Center and I loved it. It was the best experience for me. I was born and raised in the beautiful islands and am so grateful to live there. I was also born into the church and love having the gospel in my life. I love to draw and paint as a hobby and also love helping people.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and was raised by a mother that was a convert and a father that was also raised in the church. My mother converted because she was friend's with a mormon girl and decided to take lessons from the missionaries. When she felt it was right, she was baptized and became a member. I'm so grateful that she decided to become a member of the church because if she didn't then she wouldn't have met my father and I wouldn't be here today. I'm also a Mormon because I know this gospel is true and I have a strong testimony of God, Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith, the restoration, and everything that the gospel has for me and my family. I love this gospel and see how it has blessed my life to this very day and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

When I was attending BYU-Hawaii, I was surrounded with many members of the church and it was nice to be around members with same standards as I. I was able to work at the Polynesian Culture Center that was next to the school and be one of the dancers. Working there was a great experience because there were a lot of members that worked there to and we were able to share the spirit with the guests that would visit the center. We also had Sister missionaries that would share the gospel with the guests.
