Hi I'm Olivia Nicolosi

I love to play the violin, I will be serving a mission in Monterrey Mexico, I love to learn, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been playing the violin for about 8 years, and I absolutely love it. I enjoy reading, baking, dancing, bike riding, exercising, and doing other outdoor activities. I have recently come to enjoy running as well. In high school I participated in the Distinguished Young Women program (Junior Miss), which I believe greatly added to my self confidence. I love to learn and experience new things, and I especially enjoy learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am preparing to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints beginning in April, and lasting for about 18 months. I am determined to succeed as I make and work towards my goals, which include being the best missionary I can be, so that I may be used as an instrument in the Lords hands to reach out to others and help them receive a fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which I know to be true.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church and my parents raised me under its teachings. Throughout my life I have read The Book of Mormon, attended Church meetings, prayed often, served others, and listened to the prophets and church leaders. These things have helped me to feel God's presence. It has been a feeling of warmth, surety, peace, and understanding in my heart. Overall the teachings of the gospel has brought me understanding, surety, purpose, and has helped me to make important decisions in my life. Being a Mormon has taught me to be happy and I am happy! :)

How I live my faith

In high school I had the opportunity to be the historian in the Mayor's Youth Advisory Board. I recorded things we discussed in every meeting. As members of the Mayor's Youth we focused our efforts on serving and improving our community. I am also able to serve in my ward as I fellowship ward members and neighbors, and as I participate in meaningful discussions in church meetings where we can strengthen each other and become better as we continuously strive to be like the Savior and follow his teachings.
