Hi I'm Jessica

I am the oldest of 6 kids and grew up in the Bay Area of California.

About Me

I am a college student and currently studying to be an Administrative Assistant. My interest include: flying, drawing, reading, and most importantly, music. After I finish my Administrative Assistant Certificate, I plan on transferring to a University to pursue either Architecture or something in the medical field. I have a huge interest in music and currently am in a choir in which I sing Alto.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I grew up in the church. I went to a church college and that's where I became personally converted. I was going through a really huge trial in my life and just wasn't sure if I was fitting in at the school and my grades were slipping. During my second semester, one of my friends helped me become stronger in the gospel. She stood out from the rest of the crowd and decided to be the kind of friend that would lift me up. No one has ever done that for me. As this continued, she encouraged me to continue to go to church and read the scriptures. As I did so, my faith became stronger than ever. I started to believe that Christ died for us and that He made it possible for us to overcome our challenges. It all happened because one friend decided to help me realize who I was. I am a daughter of Heavenly Father and the Jesus Christ is my eldest brother. I continue to stay active in the church and have plans to serve a mission because one person showed me what this gospel is about. I want to go and teach others this gospel and to share my happiness with them. I know that this church has helped me through a lot and I continue to believe that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I am currently just being a volunteer for my ward as a chorister. But I participate in ward activities such as Family Home Evening, and occasionally Ward Missionary Night. I have plans to serve a mission in the future, but currently not sure when I will be serving.
