Hi I'm Lily

I grew up in Orem, Utah. I am half Costa Rican, and half Belizean. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was a full time student attending BYU and living with my mother and working part time. My parents divorced shortly after I was born and have lived with my mom ever since then. Although I grew up in this type of environment where no father was present; this situation has caused me to be strong and independent early on. I have throughly enjoyed my college life thus far. I have learned a lot from the many friends I have encountered upon while attending school and some of those friends have become life time friends as well. They have had a lasting impact on my life; I learned early on in life through my mom that friends can make or break you. I have been very fortunate and blessed to have friends that have always wanted the best for me and believe in me. Some of my favorite activities are playing soccer which I played quite a bit growing up; I played on my High School Volleyball team which a blast! I love the diversity of cultures and I really enjoy doing Humanitarian work and actually helped gather 150 bags of clothes that were to be donated to third world countries. Helping communities and the people bring a lot of joy to my life. I kind of feel that we are put here on earth to assist as many people as we can using our skills, talents and abilities that our Father in Heaven has given us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen what this gospel has done for me in my life. I have seen the powerful influence that Christ has on me and I am truly grateful for that. I follow the teachings of Christ because I know they are true and they help me to choose what is right. I continue to follow and represent this gospel because of the experiences that I have had in my life, which have testified to me that he has been a big part of my life in helping me become who I am today.

How I live my faith

I had the privilege of assisting the youth in my ward, it was fun to be able to plan and coordinate some of the activities we did. I was also just recently called as a primary teacher to teach the 9-10 years which I absolutely have loved!
