Hi I'm Valeria

I was born and raised in a long and skinny country called Chile. Moved to Utah when I was 15, and a year later moved to Texas.

About Me

I am probably the tallest 17 year old Chilean you'll ever meet. I love music so much it hurts other people to hear me sing. I play the guitar, the ukelele, and the piano. I am so stubborn that I refused to take lessons to learn these instruments and ended up teaching myself. Reading is one of my favorite things to do. The Book of Mormon brings so much peace to my soul, which makes me want to share this peace with everyone around me. I like being happy all the time and helping others feel happy as well. I owe this happiness to the gospel and to my Savior.

Why I am a Mormon

I can truly say I have come to know for myself that this church is true. The happiest I have ever been has been when I am tuned with the spirit and doing things that the Lord would approve of. Since I have learned some of the ways the Lord works with me, I decided that I would keep doing the things that made me have pure joy in my heart, and these things, I came to realize, were always the things of the Lord. I believe we are on this Earth to be happy and that is exactly what I strive to do each day by following the teachings of the gospel. :-)

How I live my faith

I love going out with the missionaries around my area and helping them bring others unto Christ. Their sweet spirits have inspired me to serve a mission in the future. I am active in the church and serve in my calling as a counselor of the young women that are 16-18.
