Hi I'm Uisa

I grew up in Southern California. I love playing volleyball, reading books, and spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up with five younger siblings and one older half sister. We played a lot of sports growing up, including volleyball, basketball and football. After I graduated high school, I went to university in Los Angeles CA where I studied Human Biology and everything science related. I love reading, I love learning about new things whether it be religious, scientific or even food related. I also love art and music! I used to do ceramics in school and painting is one of my guilty pleasures. More so often than not, I'll just sketch during my free time. I love listening to music, reggae being my favorite musical genre.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Christ is, in every sense of the word, perfect. I love that the gospel is rooted in family; my family means the world to me, and while we certainly are not perfect, the gospel teaches us that we can help each other become perfect, become closer to Jesus Christ. Each one of us will face trials in our lives, but with our earthly families and with our Brother Jesus Christ, those trials can be overcome. I love that the gospel is rooted in the idea that love is universal. Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father do not limit their love to any race, any country, or any person. They love each one of us unconditionally. And I love that the gospel has shown me this limitless love. It has kept me humble and taught me that there's no one person in my life I can't find room in my heart to love. I am a Mormon because the gospel, for me, holds all the answers. I may not know all the answers yet; there will always be something I don't know. But I have faith that this gospel is true and always will be. It has touched the lives of my family, of my friends and of those who have come before me. I am proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I always try to be as involved as I can when it comes to living my faith. Even when I was younger I remember my family and I going to do service projects with the ward, cleaning up parks or visiting less active family members during the holidays. I served many youth counseling roles, often times planning out large events like a summer camp for the young women or fundraiser nights and such. I have been blessed to have many different callings, and they have certainly helped me become stronger and more closer to the gospel.
