Hi I'm Numia Kennerley

I grew up in New Zealand until I was 18. I will attend BYU Hawaii. Called to serve in Texas, San Antonio. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Numia. I am currently 18 turning 19 (2017). I am Maori/Samoan/European. I grew up in New Zealand until I was 17. I loved New Zealand, and because I am also Maori a piece of me will always be there. I love Rugby, Basketball, Track and all things sporty. My family and I recently moved to Washington in 2016 and it was quite difficult adjusting. Even though I have plenty of cousins and family here it was still difficult to get into the groove of school and everything social. Staying close to family and my religion helped me through my senior year. I've been accepted into BYU Hawaii where I will attend after my 2 year mission in San Antonio Texas!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I truly believe in this gospel. I believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins so that we could return to live with our Heavenly father again. I also believe that Jesus Christ is the head of this church today. I believe that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to this earth. I have seen the wonderful life this gospel has given to my family and want the same thing for everyone!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be as kind as I can to everyone. I also try to be the best version of myself at all times and to love everyone! I am currently a Sunday school teacher at church for the youth which is awesome!
