Hi I'm Maya

And I'm a Mormon

About Me

In a group of people I'm usually recognized as a friendly, energetic girl. I love to sing (in the car), dance (like no one is watching), play sports, and be surrounded by my family and friends. I'm always down to learn new things. I have always been an extremely positive and happy person. I enjoy going to the beach, staying up late, and watching movies. Sounds pretty stereotypical right?... I'm a Beauty School Graduate use my cosmetology license to put me through College at a University. ! I'm in that wonderful stage of life where dreams are big and anything is possible. I'm currently pursuing a major in Communications and Public Relations with a minor in International studies.

Why I am a Mormon

Sometimes when one is raised in the gospel, it's hard to pinpoint the exact moment when he or she receives a testimony of the truth. But through many small moments I can personally attest that I have that testimony because of these experiences. Sometimes I make mistakes, everyone does, and when that happens I'm so grateful that I can repent and be forgiven because of Jesus Christ and the things He's done for me (and you too!). I'm a Mormon because I desire God's help and guidance in my life. There is so much knowledge and peace in the church and I know it's because it's the church of Jesus Christ. His influence is so prominent in lessons taught and the spirit is so comforting. I could never deny it's truth. I know that God hears and answers prayers. I know that we are never EVER alone. Growing up in this beautiful gospel has taught me how to see the world through God's eyes, and inspired to reach my full potential as a daughter of God.

How I live my faith

In the past I have served as a youth leader. I have been a counselor at girls camp where I helped teach girls how to be better campers, and helped strengthen their testimonies of God. I have attended religion classes for 4 years BEFORE school each day of high school, where friends were always welcome. I have served an 19 month mission in Scottsdale Arizona, where I will had the chance to share my faith with others and do the Lord's work. By teaching others about the Gospel of Jesus Christ I've been blessed to see a lot of wonderful people around me change their lives to come closer to God. Most notably you can see my faith in my everyday life as I strive to live as Jesus did. I'm honest, kind, helpful, and friendly. Maybe you are too....? We are changing the world, you and I.
