Hi I'm Tifa

I am from Tustin, California, now living in Laie, Hawaii attending Brigham Young University - Hawaii. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student in my Junior Year of college at Brigham Young University - Hawaii. I am scheduled to graduate in April of 2016 with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology. Afterwards, I plan to go to Medical School in California to a school that will accept me and continue on with my dream of becoming a Psychiatrist. In Hawaii I spend most of my time at work, at Buffalo Wild Wings the rest of the time on the couch in my college house with my roommates doing homework! On the days that I do not have any responsibilities I like to go to the beach or to the movies, and occasionally shopping. I love sports and to be active, my favorite sport is soccer, but I also love Volleyball and hiking more than anything. If I could do one thing every day it would be to go on a very scenic nature hike with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because without this gospel I would be an entirely different person. I would be a someone that I would not like and would not know. I know this because I have been to a place where i've felt this way and did feel my constant friend and companion, The Holy Spirit. I am a Mormon because I want to reap the blessings that come from living the commandments. I am a Mormon because I leave in trials that will humble me, I believe that hard times and a constant struggle will make you grateful for even the most minute things in life. I am a Mormon because although I am the only active member in my family I believe that I will one day be sealed to them for time and all eternity. I am a Mormon because I believe that there will be a much better, joyful and peaceful life after our time here on this Earth that was assembled for us. I am a Mormon because I have witnessed the power the Priesthood has firsthand.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being happy and always remembering what my Savior Jesus Christ has done for me.
