Hi I'm Tessa Hadley

I am a jazz vocalist, a cross-country runner, and a soon-to-be missionary in Hong Kong, China. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have been blessed to be able to travel and perform with an all-state jazz band throughout high school. I have performed as a lead vocalist in Carnegie Hall and Dizzy's Lincoln Center in New York City, as well as Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I have met so many wonderful and influential people through my music. I am also a long distance runner and have just completed my first season of cross-country at Dixie State University. I am the second oldest of four children. I love school and am looking into applying to Dental School to become an Orthodontist one day. And a mom!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that I can be happy and feel peace through the difficult and trying times that this life has to offer. I am a Mormon because I know that I have a Savior, a brother, Jesus Christ who loved me enough to pay the price for my sins and sorrows; He is my redeemer and through Him I can return to live with my Heavenly Father once again. I choose to follow the example of my Savior because it is through faith on Him that we will progress in this life. Our Father in Heaven wants us to know the amount of happiness, peace, and hope we can feel in this life. He wanted this so badly for His children, that He has provided His only Begotten Son as a means to which we can each achieve these amazing blessings. I am a Mormon because I know that I am a daughter of God, and that He will be with me through all; the hard and the easy, the sad and the happy. I am a Mormon because I know that He loves me fully and unconditionally.

How I live my faith

" Behold, ye are a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Ye have been called of Him to declare His word among His people." (3 Ne. 5:13) This is the confirmation I had received through the scriptures one night about my mission call to Hong Kong, China! How blessed I am to receive such an opportunity to give back to my Father in Heaven and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I will be learning and preaching in the Cantonese language. I have always wanted to serve a mission and am anxious to leave because the day is finally here!
