Hi I'm Alexandra Gallardo

I live in California, born in Newport Beach. I am about to begin my mission in Chile in just 27 days. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a very big family. I am the second oldest out of five sisters, yes all girls. Even though we are all quite different from one another, i could not imagine my life without them. I love being active and playing sports. During high school i played basketball, was on the track and swim team. I am a dog lover, i have two dogs named Bruno and Grace. I've lived in the same city all my 19 years of life and i love it here because the beach is 5 min away from my home. I have many goals and dreams, and one of them is to serve a mission like both of my parents did when they were close to my age. After months of preparing to serve, i have received my mission call to serve to the kind people of Concepcion Chile, i report in just 27 days and i could not be more excited !

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, meaning that my parents taught me how to live according to my beliefs from a very young age. But I have come to love the gospel through my own will. I have gained my own testimony of the gospel, in which i do not depend on anyone else testimony to be strengthened but my own. I have simply felt the big difference in my life when i've drifted away from my heavenly father even if it was just for a short period, i always felt an emptiness in my heart and i was rarely happy. I knew from that day on that keeping the Lord in my life is the only way to obtain true and eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

The way i live my faith, is by keeping a close communication with my heavenly father. Prayer is key to maintaining my faith alive. Also, by obeying the commandments, attending church, reading the scriptures, participating of the sacraments every Sunday and being worthy to enter the temple. Also by always remembering who i am, a daughter of my heavenly father who loves me and will always be there to guide me and strengthen me through out lives hardships, I just have to be willing to put of my part, always.
