Hi I'm Melevaka Vete

I'm from Oregon. I'm Tongan. I have a love of traveling. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family means everything to me! My parents and my siblings are my BEST friends! I'm the oldest of four children! I wouldn't trade my crazy beautiful family for anything! Born in Grand Prairie, Texas but moved to Oregon when I was five. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, which is the best city in the world! I love photography, hiking, and snuggling with Rico, my cute pitbull baby. My love for the great outdoors and lush green trees comes from the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I attended university in Utah and then moved back to the PNW to be closer to my family. Currently serving in the New Mexico Albuquerque mission (NMAM - BEST MISSION IN THE WORLD!). I have a deep love and passion for traveling and exploring and hope to cross more destinations off my list real soon.

Why I am a Mormon

The love my Savior and Heavenly Father have for me is REAL! I feel it everyday when I look at the beauty that surrounds me: my family, the sun as it sets, the beautiful flowers blooming.. the list goes on. The journey that my Heavenly Father has taken me on, to shape and mold me into the person I know I am, is the constant reminder to me that I can be better and WILL be better through Him. The happiness and joy my heart feels is because I know who I am and my divine potential. I have learned for myself the truthfulness of this gospel, of the Book of Mormon, and the love our Savior, Jesus Christ offers me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying each and every day to become more like my brother and savior, Jesus Christ. He is the only perfect example. Living day by day by his teachings and trying my best to understand and love like He did. The gospel is pure and simple, I must do my part in living the commandments. I have a knowledge that the church is true and the happiness it brings me and my family help me to strive to be the best I can be everyday!
