Hi I'm Kim

I was born in New Jersey, and grew up in Florida. I'm a BYUI student. I'm an apparel design major, and love it. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student at Brigham Young University-Idaho, and I absolutely love it. I am majoring in Apparel Design and minoring in both Business Management and Art. Before I get my bachelor's degree, I decided to serve a mission. I leave July 30,2014! I'm off to the Dominican Republic (Santo Domingo East Mission), which is where my family is from. I feel so incredibly blessed for this opportunity! In my spare time I like to read, draw, and play with my friends and family. I love learning new things and going on adventures. Meeting new people is also something I've always enjoyed! Life is pretty great so far, and I know it's just going to get better from here.

Why I am a Mormon

I know Jesus Christ lives. I know my Heavenly Father lives and they both love me so much. I know Joseph Smith restored the true gospel here on this Earth, and I don't know where I'd be without it! I know the Book of Mormon is true and couldn't tell you how many times I've read it from cover to cover. It seriously gets better each time. I know families can be together forever, and what a blessing that is. I know this gospel is the reason I am truly happy. This gospel is what gives my life light and warmth. This gospel is everything to me, and I feel so loved because of it.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite things to do in order to actively participate in my ward is to plan/organize activities! I've helped do it for little kids, youth, and adults as well, and I love it! It's always so much fun getting everyone together to enjoy each other's company whether it's for a random activity or a holiday or special occasion. Helping people in any way you can is pretty easy to do in the church, which is why I try to do my best when we're assigned specific sisters to help out in the ward. We're required to contact these women and make sure they're doing swell at least once a month, and that basically means "make a new friend." And that's pretty awesome!
