Hi I'm Nicole

Born in Texas, lived in Chile for two years, grew up in Cali. I'm a mormon. I attend BYU-I. I'll be serving a mission in Uruguay.

About Me

I'm a college student and I'm excited to live on my own. I love socializing and I'm pretty easygoing. When I was in high school I played tennis and ran in track. I enjoy working out and eating.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because it's what some of my family members or others would want me to be. It's because I want to be a Mormon. As a young adult I do realize everyday that would be easier to be accepted by others and just live life in the moment if I weren't Mormon. I would have more friends and would be invited to more social events if I were not Mormon. I mention this because I love going out with people and I love talking to people with different views. However, some people don't accept me just cause I'm Mormon and I have different views from them. I see this daily but I have never and will never be willing to to change who I am just to fit in with the world. I see more blessings everyday than social consequences for being a Mormon. I've learned to be happy and proud for being different. I follow the standards I have been encouraged to live because it makes me a better person and it brings me joy. I may be missing out in temporal happiness of the world but I'm receiving long lasting and eternal joy instead. This is my testimony and also testify of the power of prayer and reading the scriptures is real. Without it I would be lost and confused. I would not be the person I am proud of today if it weren't for my church.

How I live my faith

When I was in California I participated in community service like picking up trash at the beach, cleaning the cemetery, feeding the homeless, visiting the elderly. As a leader of my age group of my youth (Laurel President), I would plan activities that were educational and/or spiritual but would make it fun for the youth. My goal as the leader was to have the youth to desire to be involved in the activities and have new experiences that will help them later in life.
