Hi I'm Rachel Santos

I am half Filipino. I am pie eating champion. I love to write and record my own music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I go to Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where I am currently studying visual arts, hoping to get into the photography program. My real passion however is in music. I love to sing and write music on the piano or ukulele. If I could have any dream job, it would be to make music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it gives me hope, happiness, and ultimately helps me grow and become better. Feeling God's love for me in my life is the greatest feeling I have ever felt in this life. Knowledge of God's plan gives me purpose and direction. Each day I am able to wake up excited and happy knowing that when I trust in God, turn my life over to him, and live righteously, I will be happy, and my life will go in the direction that God intends. I am Mormon because this gospel gives me strength. Knowledge of Christ's Atonement has given me to courage to overcome hardships and eventually change my weaknesses into strengths. I am Mormon because I know this church is true. My prayers have been answered, God is real, and this is his church.

How I live my faith

Something I am most excited for is the opportunity to serve a mission. I will be traveling to Paraguay and living away from home for 18 months. There I will teach the gospel of Jesus Christ and share my personal testimony through service and love.
