Hi I'm Nikki Roberson

I'm from the DFW Area. I love to make friends. I'm an beginner artist. I have a strange knack of surpassing expectations!!!

About Me

I'm the second child and the baby girl out of three children. I also am a mentally disabled person with PDD-NOS Autism with Type 1 Diabetes. I went to community college for a year to get basics under the belt. I was born in the church in 1993 on the day I was due.I also am a green belt blue tip in Taekwondoe. I took kickboxing, dance and gym in school. I've been a 1st soprano for my whole high school career. I LOVE music so much, I sing to the songs that I hear. Both my mom and dad are converts. My mom served a mission in Holland/ Netherlands. My older sister is married and has a son that I love to death. My younger brother is only 17 years old and he is 6'5". My dad works for a major computer company by creating programs for the computer or for the phone. He has a black belt in Kenpo. My mom stays home with my grandma, who comes down once a year for about six months. She also does family history work as a volunteer job and taught all three of us a good work ethic. I am currently in Boise, Idaho, serving a mission to the people there.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up means that you make choices. Some of the choices I made weren't very smart ones. For some time, I was stuck on what I should do in my life. I had taken a year of college and then went to work to pay some bills. I kept praying and praying to know what I needed to do. In October 2012, the opening session was on and my family was in my dad's old office. President Monson gave the announcement of the age change for the missionaries. The elders age dropped to age 18 and for the sisters, it dropped to 19. For me, that was an answer that I was looking for. The following Monday, I fasted and prayed to see if this is what I needed to do to progress in my life. I got my answer with love and comfort as I was told,"You have been called on to serve my people, My dear, sweet child." I will never, ever forget that amazing feeling I felt back then. I know that God is there for all of us, even if we can't see or hear him. That is my testimony in the sacred and holy name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, Amen.

How I live my faith

When I was back home, I tried to make as many friends as possible. There were thoughts that went on in my head if someone didn't want to talk to me, like, 'What did I do to make that person not like me?','Did I hurt their feelings?', 'Is it something that they don't like about me?', and 'What can I do to get them to like me?'. I always was talking to people, trying to see if there was someone that needed my help and I would do my best and more to become their friend. My dad always could rely on me to be a fellow-shipper and to always have a smile on my face. People wouldn't think that I could do a whole lot with my Autism, but every time I always blew what they expected out of the water. I really love the fact that I can do so much with the gospel in my life and that I can do the things I want to do knowing that someone is out there listening to me.
