Hi I'm Levi

I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I love to draw and listen to music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Samoan-Japanese. When I was 3, both my parents were divorced. Fortunately, they were remarried and sealed in the Laie Temple to my stepparents. I was sealed to my mother and stepfather in September 2016. I have six other siblings; one older sister, two younger brothers, two younger stepsisters and one older stepbrother. I am preparing to leave and serve my mission in Provo, Utah. My passions and hobbies include drawing, listening to music and exercising. After my mission, I want to transfer to BYU-Provo or BYU-Idaho and study Illustration or Animation to become a cartoonist or storyboard artist. I love everything about my life!

Why I am a Mormon

Both my families decided to come back to church in 2011, which is when me and my little brother got baptized. At first, I didn't realize how important my decision to become a member was. I began to read and ponder the scriptures for the first time and I was touched and amazed by the teachings of this gospel. Coming from divorced parents, the gospel has taught me about eternal families and happiness. I was fortunate that both of my parents and families came back to the Church. I realized even though I came from different families, the gospel was able to reunite all of us as ONE in the next life. No matter who I was sealed to we'd see one another again. The gospel has had a personal effect on me as well; as a kid I had Asperger's syndrome. I was different from other kids, whereas I always kept to myself, and I didn't like socializing with others as much. However, as my knowledge of the gospel grew, so did my love to interact, serve others and even share the gospel. If there is anything you can learn from this, I bear true witness that Heavenly Father knows us better than we know ourselves. He can change our weaknesses into strengths. He can help us to understand that we are capable of more than we think.

How I live my faith

I like to go out with the missionaries from my ward and teach lessons to investigators, ward members and inactive members. I don't hold any callings at the moment, however, I do enjoy
