Hi I'm Malanah

I grew up in Compton, California. I'm an artist and Polynesian dancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to dance and draw. I am a volunteer for elementary and middle schools. I work with the Polynesian Clubs to help them learn about the culture. I will be attending a Junior College and then transferring to a University. My major is Studio Art but i will also be studying dance and learning Korean. I plan to start my own clothing business while I am in college.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was raised in the church. My family are strong members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and attend church and church activities regularly. I continue to follow His gospel because at one point in my life my family was inactive and we also lost a family member who was my brother. My brother was the biggest inspiration and had the biggest influence on my life and he loved attending church. When he passed away things got really hard for my family so I decided that I should go back to church and when I did things got better. I learned again about the Plan of Salvation and that I will be able to see my brother again and live with him and our Father who is in Heaven. Now i am a strong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I know I am truly blessed everyday. I have a strong Testimony of His gospel for I know that it is true. The gospel are the true teachings of Jesus Christ and with that I have learned that after every Trial and Tribulation, after every pain and sorrow that we have in our life, a greater blessing is yet to come. Without sorrow we can have no joy, and without pain we can have no happiness. I am truly thankful for the gospel and what it has done for not only me but my family.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is through attending Church and Church activities as much as possible. I pray and read the scriptures everyday because it invites the spirit. Sometimes I will teach the youth dances for youth activities. When I can, I sing church hymns and try to learn them in other languages.
