Hi I'm Daniel

I grew up in Temecula california, I skate,I like dancing, I will be serving in the Mexico Saltillo Mission, and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a very diverse family; my mom being Peruvian/White and my dad Samoan. Sometimes cultures clash but at the end of the day we still each other. I am the oldest of 6 kids (3 boys and 3 girls) which can be challenging sometimes. I loves spending my days at the skate park with my 2 little brothers or at dances with my friends. If i'm not doing either of these two, i would probably be raiding my fridge: i love to eat! I currently live in Utah, but will soon be leaving to Mexico to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in Southern California, I didn't grow up with many Mormons. At school i was one of few of our faith, and it was hard at sometimes. Different beliefs all around. Then I moved to Utah where basically everyone is Mormon, which was kind strange at first. I experienced some culture shock moving here, mainly of how nice the people where out in Utah. It took me awhile to get used to random people smiling and waving to me. I find myself now doing this same exact thing. This great religion is based on doing deeds and service for other, and that's why i love it so much. I also love the idea that families can be together forever, I couldn't imagine a life without them.

How I live my faith

I regularly attend church on Sunday, not because Lehi 42nd Samoan Ward is the best ward in the world, but so i can partake of the sacrament, and gain something new from lessons being taught that day. I am also very active in our YSA program, where all the young single adults just come together and hangout. I have a great love and respect for my ward, every member who is apart of it is like a family member to me. I don't currently hold a calling, but from time to time the bishop will have the YSA fill in as primary teachers. Let me tell you, teaching those kids has probably been more challenging than any talk I've had to give in sacrament before. Not because the lesson itself is difficult , but helping them retain what is being shared. So hopefully they go home, and share what they learned with their families.
