Hi I'm Akayla Ferrara

I'm from Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho. I am the oldest of 10 kids. We are a very musical family. Everyone has at least one instrument that they play very well and we love to play together in our own family orchestra. I have been playing the piano and violin since I was 5 years old. I've been in many choirs and I love to sing. I also love to clog and I have made it on the All-American Team 2 different years. I went to BYU-Idaho for 2 semesters studying music teaching. I'm preparing to serve a mission in Nebraska Omaha next week and I can't wait!

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church of Latter-day saints, and continue to follow His gospel because I know without a shadow of a doubt that it is true. It was restored by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Jesus Christ died for each of us so that we can repent of our sins and return to Him again someday. He was then resurrected, and I know He lives again. He is my Savior, and I know He loves me and answers my prayers!

How I live my faith

I always look for ways to serve people. Something I love about my church is that we are always given opportunities to serve others, and these opportunities help us grow and become more like our Savior.
