Hi I'm Janiika

I grew up in New Zealand. I'm a Tourguide at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, Hawaii. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm studying to become an Art Therapist. I will be the first in my immediate and extended family to graduate with a university degree, in December 2014. Art really is interwoven into all my interests - from cooking, baking, decorating, and painting, I enjoy all creative activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS Church as a Mormon, and was REALLY converted when I realized just how much God loves me and appreciates me. I know that He lives and I know He is the Christ. He sends us Prophets who allow us to hear the word of God - He still speaks to us because He still loves us! I am grateful to know that He is always there and He writes a better plan for us than we could ever write for ourselves. I know that He is the source of all happiness and joy in this life and that we become better as we try to be more like Him. Our days become more meaningful when we spend it in the service of others - that really is the key: that all that is worth doing in this life, is what we do for others. I am who I am, because He is who He is.

How I live my faith

As a youth leader I have met many beautiful individuals who have benefited from Art Therapy and they have inspired me to use my passion for art and humanities to help use my talents as a form of therapy and rehabilitation for others.
