Hi I'm Nanasi

I grew up in Tonga. I love singing, serving, and hanging out with friends. And I love my family to no end. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've gradated from high school and completed two years of college. I'm now preparing to serve a mission. I love singing, dancing, hanging out with friends. I love learning and discovering things. Being the oldest daughter in my [Tongan] family come with so much responsibility and expectations that it's overwheming sometimes! But it's all worth it.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But I still have my flaws. Growing up in this gospel, I sometimes took for granted the blessings that came from it. It wasn't until I was on my own in college when I was lost; lost my sense of focus in life, lost emotionally, and lost spiritually. I was too stubborn and prideful to admit it. That's when I grew up and started sincerely appreciating what the gospel has always blessed me with. This gospel makes me happy. This gospel gives me hope. This gospel encourages me to become a better person unceasingly. This gospel continually gives. I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Coming from a small island kingdom in the Pacific, one of the opportunities that I have been blessed with was being able to serve. When it comes to church events, you would sometimes find me at a ward member's house helping with food and refreshments, or with my fellow peers helping clean someone's yard or garden, doing community service with others at an assigned area. Even just being at church and supporting the leaders and participating in class discussion are a couple other things I look forward to every week. I was also given the opportunity to teach a group of youth at an activity. Instead of expecting to teach something, I realized that the youth had so much potential, and it turned out that I was the one that was learning and benefitting from them and their views that were shared. Serving others has been an eyeopener for me. Losing myself in service has helped me grow spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.
