Hi I'm Aiza

Aloha! I'm from Hawaii and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third child out of six children. I grew up in Hawaii for most of my life and enjoy the lovely sun and great outdoors. I love to run Cross-Country and Track and I play basketball as well. My other hobbies include playing the piano and ukulele. I attended Brigham Young University - Hawaii (2013-2014) for one year and had the opportunity to participate on the cross-country team. I love pizza and bananas. Smoothies and Acai bowls are also really tasteful to the tummy :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know without a doubt that this Gospel holds the most perfect truths and can lead one to true happiness. I was born and raised in this gospel. My parents, both active in the church, strived to teach us, children, basic principles of the Gospel that would benefit us in our years of growing up. Especially in my teenage years, I had noticed I was different than other kids. To start, I had a stable family life. I had been taught discipline, humility, and kindness in dealing with others. But most importantly, I had the knowledge of who I am, what my purpose here on Earth is, and where I am going after this life. I hadn't realized how much this knowledge would help me in my decisions and choices I made in my daily life. Nonetheless, I have gained a testimony of how living the commandments of the Lord has given me blessings beyond my own reach. Everything I have received is from my Heavenly Father. He has blessed me with all my opportunities, talents, and resources. I know that without him, I cannot reach my full potential. And through much time and experience, I know that I can truly become closer to my Heavenly Father through this wonderful Gospel he has given us. Being a Mormon does come with high standards and expectations. However, it is through these sensible values and morals that we can receive everlasting happiness opposed to temporary joy.

How I live my faith

During my time in the church, I've had the privilege to be a leader in my youth groups. I got to participate on a board in which we planned fun and uplifting activities for teenagers ranging from 12-18. During my time at college, I had the opportunity to get to know more of the women in my ward and was assigned to coordinate monthly visiting-teaching. I attend many of the church activities such as dances, firesides, and other workshops. Currently, I am serving a full-time mission with a calling to the Argentina, Buenos Aires North Mission, Spanish speaking. I am SOOOO excited to teach the people of Argentina the most happiest word that exists on this earth. This experience will top any experience that I will go through in my life thus far and I know that many lives, including mine, will be so blessed by the Gospel. Heavenly Father has blessed me with everything in my life. Serving this 18 month mission is THE LEAST I could do to give back to him.
