Hi I'm Kawena

I am from Hawai'i. I love musicals. I love my eternal family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being Hawaiian and I love to dance the Polynesian cultures. I work at the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) and attended Brigham Young University Hawaii. I love watching, and listening to plays/musicals. My favorite sport to play is volleyball. My all time favorite drink is Otai (Tongan watermelon drink), and my favorite food is cake noodles. I love my family, friends, and above all, my Heavenly Father!

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful for the privilege of being raised in the gospel and for my parents who accepted the gospel into their lives. I was baptized at the age of 8 and have been immensely blessed for making that decision. Although I have the freedom of agency here on Earth I believe that Heavenly Father directed my path towards this Gospel and I had the privilege of learning and growing in this gospel from a young age. I have felt Gods love and my own true conversion by the spirit. I know that what I read in the scriptures and what is taught to me through Gods disciples, the prophets, are true. The spirit has and continues to testify to me that these things are true and necessary for eternal life. My testimony is always growing and building and everyday I am grateful for the forms of blessings I've received that has contributed to this strength. Above all, I just love my Heavenly Father so much!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by becoming involved in many activities that invite and help radiate the Spirit. In the community that I am currently living in I am presented with many opportunities to be of service and to share my testimony. Such activities as visiting teaching other sisters in the ward, community service, going to appointments with the sister missionaries, doing temple work, and working at PCC which helps me to radiate that spirit of Aloha, which is the spirit of Christ, to the guest who come to visit the center. Just by being that example and striving to live like Christ is how I live my faith!
