Hi I'm Kyrie

I grew up in a family of eight. I make movies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love writing and making films. I love film, I love animated film, I love theater, I love all kinds of books. Anything with fun characters and great storylines is bound to get me interested. So, you know, anything Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Avatar: Last Airbender, or DC comics related, I'm pretty sure to love. I enjoy singing and drama and pursued musical theater all through high school with an incredible director and teacher that helped me evolve into who I am today. I love my family and have two little sister and five (crazy) little brothers. I love to make movies and someday hope to be directing animated productions on the big screen, changing lives through film. I'm studying at BYU, but am currently serving in the Florida, Orlando mission, speaking Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this Church and always believed it was true up until about my senior year of high school. I'm still not sure exactly what triggered it, but I was lost. I did not feel peace, I did not feel certainty, I did not know what the truth was. I found myself in a darkness so potent and found myself so miserable, it was difficult to struggle through daily life. Then, in my second year of college, I was found by roommates, an amazing bishop, and loving family and friends. My family never gave up on me and continued to show love and wished me to be happy. There was a night I was talking to a very close roommate of mine and it opened the door to becoming happy again. She shared with me her very personal testimony and declared that she knew the Church was true and was the way to happiness. That night I prayed and started studying my scriptures with her. While I did not have one single massive declaration of truth given to me, I have said several experiences that have taught me this truth: that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. There are hymns and scriptures that truly speak to me and I always feel the Spirit when I sing or read the words. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and the only way to achieve true and lasting happiness is by living its teachings.

How I live my faith

I love being involved in the ward and the community. I've been in lots of teaching roles; I've taught five year olds, I've taught adults, men, women. I love teaching! I love that my ward, the community I'm in, becomes like a family. I've been involved in organizing events; I even planned an activity involving a barbeque and an outdoor movie night. I have really enjoyed visiting teaching. I get assigned a companion and then we get to teach a couple other sisters in the ward. It really builds a sense of camaraderie. Working with the amazing people in my neighborhood has helped me want to be a better person!
