Hi I'm Princess Donato

Grew up in the Philippines and Qatar. A BYUH Biology student. Road trip and travel lover. Washington DC South. I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm a college student studying Biology in Brigam Young University Hawaii. I love nature and one of my favorite things to do is spending time in the ocean , like snorkeling and observing God's beautiful creation. I love going on road trips and traveling. I made this goal that at least once a year, I will travel to a place/country I've never been before. I was born in the Philippines and when I was 14, me and my family moved to Qatar for my dad's work and it was there where I spent my whole High school in an international school where I get to be exposed around people with different cultures and traditions. My experiences in those years led me to want to learn more about other people, visit their countries and made me appreciate our uniqueness and that we are all beautiful in our own ways.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon , because I know it is true. I have felt the Holy Spirit in my life. It was not an easy process , but it took a lot of scripture study and prayer. Growing up with the church has really blessed me spiritually, educationally and mentally. I would never trade for anything all the experiences and lessons that I learn and had growing up in this gospel. I'm so grateful for the guidance the church had for my family right now and I know that it will bless my future family too. I could not ask for more.

How I live my faith

I love how The Lord has set his standards for his children. In college, I served as a Family Home Evening coordinator in my ward. A family home evening is a program established by the church to help families grow stronger in the gospel. We set aside a time (usually Monday nights) to spend with our families, talk together, address concerns , do awesome recreational activities, have fun, etc. Being far away from home in college, this help me remember my standards and always know that with the gospel in my life, I am not alone and I have a family no matter where I go. I am currently serving as a full time missionary for 1.5 years here in Northern Virginia (Washington DC South Mission)
