Hi I'm Alana

I was born in Brazil but now live in Utah, I'm a dancer and I'm a missionary in the California Riverside Mission. I'm a mormon

About Me

I am a normal teenager trying to find my way through the world. I have grown up in a home where culture was our main passion. Learning new things about different places was very exciting. I grew up a dancer and learned to express my emotions through dance. Outside the discipline of dance, I love to have fun! I am one who loves to be surrounded by family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel brings me so much happiness. I can rarely find the words to express the way I feel about this gospel. It's reassuring to know the Heavenly Father loves me and has a plan for me here on earth. From the day I decided to be baptized a member, I knew my decision was right. I have seen how my family and friends have been blessed. The Book of Mormon is the true word of god. I have read it and asked for myself if those were words were true. I was filled with a feeling of joy and peace which I knew was the holy ghost testifying to me that it is true and that this church is the true church.

How I live my faith

As a youth, I had many callings in Young Women's. I served as a class president which allowed me to work closely with the girls in my ward. As a senior in High School, I was called to be on my school's Seminary Council representing all the youth in my stake. That calling was life changing. Not only did I learn more about the gospel and how much heavenly father loves me, but I had the opportunity to serve my peers and witness real life struggles and miracles.
