About Me

I'm from San Diego California.I like sports (and any outdoor activities really) chess and sushi. I'm into theater and plan on going to college after I serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was little I had no father growing up, and my mother was never home because she always had to be out working hard for us.I have 6 brothers and sisters. One day my uncle, a quiet man who married into the family, invited us to church and I went with one of my sisters and my little brother because we had nothing else to do. And we've been going ever since. We were the youngest three in the family, all in elementary school, but we could feel something every Sunday we went. The lessons that were taught made sense and I knew that it was true, yet I was afraid because I felt I had no self worth and, if it really was true, that meant that there were things I had to do and change, which can be really scary. Nevertheless, God trusted me and worked with me to help me become the person that I am today. I definitely still mess up but I have a much greater understanding of what I can do through Him and what life is really about. I am a Mormon because this Gospel is true, and that means everything to me.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I go to church to participate in the sacrament and to obey that commandment. I also go fulfill my calling as a YW counselor, which entails teaching and being a leader for young women ages 12 to 18 years old. I have also been called to serve as a missionary and will depart in a few months to NYC to serve for 18 months. Everyday I study the scriptures pray and repent often, to try to become a better disciple of Jesus Christ.
