Hi I'm Dulce Pantoja Blanco

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I am 19 years old. I am a Latter-Day Saint.

About Me

I am a 19 year old who comes from a Hispanic family of 7. I am currently going to college and studying to be an orthodontist. I love spending time with family and friends, singing, dancing, and going on adventures.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the one true church that is guided and led by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I was born into a Catholic church but did not attend. At a young age I always felt that I was missing something in my life. One day my grandmother, who is also a Mormon, asked if I wanted to learn about the church she attended and I gladly accepted. Soon, I received talks from the missionaries and I felt as if the gap that I was missing in my life was sealed up. I made the decision to be baptized because when I learned about the gospel and applied the teachings to my life it not only made me happy, but it made my relationship with God and Christ stronger. I know that the Church is led by a true prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon is another testament of when Christ was on Earth. I know that the Book of Mormon go hand in hand and that they both teach us doctrines that help us become more like Christ. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and I also know that because we have temples and the priesthood, my family can be together for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving and serving others as much as I can. I have served as a president, first counselor, and a second counselor for each age group in the program for teenage girls in my ward. I now serve as a Sunday school teacher for the single adults. I love to go out with the missionaries in my ward to visit and teach people or families.
