Hi I'm Nelson Yamada

I was born in Canada but few up mostly in New York City, but I love the outdoors.

About Me

I was born in Toronto Canada but when I was 4 my family moved to New York City and we have lived there ever since. I had most of my education in my home done by my mother but I did attend public high school and am attending BYU Idaho studying physics. I enjoy most sports but my favorites are Skiing, Tennis, Taekwondo, and PingPong.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I grew up in the Church I had great examples to follow. my parents and my peers gave me the desire to do what was right. yet my personal witness of truth didn`t come till I was searching to know whether God was there and what he wanted me to do. through a semester of study and many prayers I came closer to My God and was able to know for my self that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints id his kingdom on this earth/

How I live my faith

While in High school I was pretty much the only member of my church and my beliefs and values didn`t match with the rest of my peers. but I knew that as I was living my religion I would be safe and I knew that as I followed what I believed I would be safe. I did sick out of the crowed somewhat and I didn`t always participate in the activities that my friends were doing. I know that through those actions I gained the respect of my peers and teachers. I was never bold about voicing my beliefs But I didn`t not compromise my actions.
