Hi I'm Paloma Chiriboga

I grew up in New York. I'm Naturopathic Medicine student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town, always with the dream of helping people. I found an outlet for my passion through Naturopathic Medicine. I will also be serving a mission in Mexico soon. I am excited to be able to fulfill my dream to help people and to be able to help them both spiritually and physically. I also love to sing, dance, and do anything in nature. I love drawing, painting, sculpture and science. I play the guitar and piano. I love all animals and especially my sweet dog named Grace.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because in some of the worst moments of my life when I felt so alone I looked inside and found the love of Christ and my Heavenly Father. At those moments I realized I was never alone. This gospel has given me that gift to know that my Heavenly Father has a plan for me and will guide me along the way, never leaving my side. As I grew older I dug deeper into the gospel and found that all of my questions like: Where have I come from? What is my purpose on this earth? What happens after? were answered with greater detail and magnificence then I could of ever imagined. I know in my heart that this is the true gospel and as I continue to learn about it that feeling gets stronger.

How I live my faith

I'm going to be serving a full-time mission in Mexico. I try to help people as much as I can whether that'll be through community service, being an ear to those who need it or simply just smiling at a stranger. A quote that I love is "a gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles." by William Hazlitt
