Hi I'm Camila

I am a college student. I grew up in California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a college student I spend most of my time doing homework or studying for tests. If I have spare time I am either going for drives with my friends, listening to music, or reading novels. I love laughing and making others laugh. Growing up, I was always doing competitive gymnastics or diving. I can no longer do sports due to injury, but I stay involved by working with my school's gymnastics team. My family is very supportive and I love being around them. Since half of my immediate family lives in Southern California and the other half in Paraguay, I have been lucky enough to grow up with a unique combination of both cultures in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am very grateful that I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Both of my parents have been members for my whole life and they always took me to church on Sundays and church activities during the week. When I was younger, I depended on my parents' faith. As I got older, I began to have unique experiences that cultivated a faith of my own. My faith has gotten me through a number of difficult trials. It is comforting for me to know that I can rely on my faith when times get rough. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ with all my heart; it has blessed my life in so many ways.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying each and every day to live like Jesus Christ. There are many things, both simple and significant, that I can do to accomplish this goal of becoming more Christlike. My favorite way to live like Christ is through serving others. Within the church, I am in charge of organizing Sunday meetings for the women. It brings me joy to see my peers learn and grow each week as we meet in church. I try to serve them as often as I can. My own faith grows as I learn from these women and their examples.
