Hi I'm Shashita Augustin

"I'm an achiever. I am a student. I'm a Mormon"

About Me

Aloha! My name is Shashita and I'm a student at BYU-Hawaii! I'm from Malaysia where we have the best food! I am soon going on my mission to the Philippines, which I am so excited about!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church when me and my siblings were really young. My aunt first introduced the gospel to my mother and that's my whole family are members now. I am a Mormon because I know that God loves us all so much and He wants the best for us. This gospel has taught me that no matter how many times I mess up or when I think no one understands what I am struggling with, there is indeed someone who perfectly knows how to help me get back on my feet. Life on earth is filled with so many challenges and trials but the gospel of Jesus Christ helps me look for the rainbow at the end of the day. I want to always be able to look for the rainbow in every circumstances that I face. That's why I'm a Mormon and I love it!

How I live my faith

I believe that doing simple things really helps me build a strong foundation of faith in my life. I have a great family that shows me daily how these things are so crucial in our everyday lives. Saying prayers, reading our scriptures, going to church and attending temple regularly are some of the things that are often repeated so many times by prophets and apostles in church because it really is the basis of everything we do in the gospel. And I couldn't agree more! I know these things are true and they will bring joy to our lives here on earth and forever.
