Hi I'm Kami

I am a zealous college student of Utah. I am an aspiring Spanish-speaking Peruvian. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I had a magical childhood where I was raised in the most beautiful valley in Utah surrounded by encouraging parents and my three sisters. We were constantly exercising our imaginations and embarking on wild adventures full of all things pink and girly. Now that we are older, & have a little brother, we still love to go on road trips, adventures and laugh until our insides hurt. I loved to be involved. Whether it be serving as president of Seminary Council and my city youth council, heading the schools service club, being in local city scholarship pageants, or being actively involved in supporting high school and college sports and productions. Striving for excellence is a life-long pursuit for me. I believe that by getting involved I can not only help my community, but I'll stretch my own potential. I have a passion for education and was blessed to be an ambassador for my university and share this accessible gift with high school students around Utah. I have dreams of travelling the world to further share this passion for learning. I am starting by serving an 18 month LDS Mission to the Peru Lima Central Mission. I'm just a girl who is terrified of chickens, is singing constantly, loves to laugh, is passionate about everything from sushi to the latest sunset and has big plans for the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been very blessed to have been born with parents that were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Because of this I have grown up surrounded by the teachings of Jesus Christ. I've been told before that, "of course I'm Mormon because I grew up that way..." This is not the case. From a young age I've been taught right from wrong, and light from dark. When I visit any LDS church, the temple grounds and the temple I am immediately filled with light and peace. As everyone has, I have had times in my life that have been hard. Times when nothing is going right, I am being pushed to my limits and the darkness is closing in. I am Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches me to find solace and peace through Christ. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ was established upon the earth in ancient times, and Joseph Smith restored Christ's true gospel back upon the earth. The Holy Ghost has witnessed this to me through the peace I find when I pray. This feeling is undeniable. It has brought me direction, peace and happiness as I am obedient and serve others.

How I live my faith

I live by the motto, "No one cares how much you know, unless they know how much you care." I live my faith by loving others and being everyone's friend no matter their unique differences from me. I find that by striving to love everyone makes you want to serve them and to share with them your happiness. Once someone knows that you always have their best interest in mind it is easy for them to want to hear about this gospel that brings me so much direction and peace. Families are the center of the LDS gospel and also the base organization in the world. I live my faith by striving to love and build up my family so we can be a family sealed even after we all go to heaven. In college my family was not around and this was also the case for many of my other neighbors. I was called by the leader of my ward to plan activities for my fellow young neighbors on Monday night, a night set aside by the President of the church as "Family Night". As young adults from all different backgrounds gathered to have fun together, pray together and love each other a change came across our apartment building. People were reaching out to receive needed help and others were eagerly reaching out to serve in any capacity. I live my faith by being obedient to callings from God. I live my faith by trying to always serve and encourage others to serve everyone and anyone.
