Hi I'm Rubina

Nothing extraordinary. I'm a student. I love to dance. I'm just a girl getting ready to serve a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Tonga but raised in the States. As a kid I moved around a lot but my siblings and I were very close so making friends wasn't an issue. My father died when I was eight so as the oldest daughter I had to step up and help my mom take care of all of us and the house. In a way I had to grow up pretty fast. Was it hard? Absolutely. Did I ever complain? Yes as do most adolescence. But I never let that get me down. I keep my self busy with school. And I love school. I love to learn new things no matter how hard it is to understand. I participated in Polynesian dances and grown a passion to be good at it. I'm not athletic at all unfortunately, but I love watching it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and baptized when I was 8. But I didn't come to a full understanding of how important this gospel is until I was 12. Thankfully through the Young Women program I was able to deal with the temptations and trial that teenagers go through. I knew I was never a lone because girls in my ward shared the same standards as me and were going through similar trials. The leaders gave me an eternal perspective. And as I grew older I already had that strong foundation of belief in the Savior and his Gospel. I know that his teachings are true. I know that he loves me and he knows me. I know that if we not only accept the gospel of Jesus Christ into our lives but live it, we can return to live with him again...with my Dad again. I cant imagine myself any happier with out it.

How I live my faith

I love visiting teaching. I attend a young single adult ward and its fun to visit other women in the ward and getting to know them better. To me, its a good way to bring us closer as sisters in the ward. Also it gives me a chance to visit the sisters who don't come to church often. So they know that some one thinks about them and someone loves them. I have a calling in the ward to plan Family Home Evening Activities. I love this calling because its my job to bring the ward together to be a family every Monday night. And plan it in a way where everyone will enjoy it and enjoy each others company with people who share the same standards as them.
