I am an extrovert in the sense that I love meeting new people and like to take the time to acknowledge those around me. If you are new at a place, I'm that person that goes out of her way to acknowledge you and welcome you. I am a complete goofball and enjoy a good uncontrollable laugh. I love people. Everyone has characteristics that makes them unique and I am thrilled to learn about what makes you special. I've been blessed to be surrounded by amazing individuals. I wish there were more hours in the day to show each one of them my love and appreciation.
I am a big foodie! Love trying different cuisines around the world. I love to eat! I workout just so that I can indulge. I enjoy learning about different cultures and languages. I speak Spanish fluently and descent amount of French. I completed a semester I'm France my junior year of college. I'm looking forward to going again in the future.
One thing above all others to know about me is that I LOVE the Lord. There is only one man who has won my heart completely and that can render this untamed soul submissive and that is GOD. I met him Fall semester 2008 during undergrad. I can remember that encounter as it if it was yesterday. I can say that my life has never been the same since. He led me to his church where I was baptized soon after. I've been a convert for six years. When I was baptized I felt I had returned home. The gospel felt familiar and living it came naturally to me. Soon after I was baptized I felt strong and persistent promptings to go on a mission. At the time I was a graduate student half way through a masters program. Despite circumstance, I did not hesitate to go to my bishop's office and tell him I was ready to put by studies on hold, contribute what I had, and even what I did not have to go and serve the Lord. Although I was willing to jeopardized my studies and livelihood in obedience to that prompting, the Lord demonstrated that his timing is always perfect. I hit my year mark as a member of the church on the same day I graduated from my masters program. I left on my mission soon after.
Years ago I would have given you a list of characteristics that I look for in a man. However, after a special experience I had approximately 2 years ago, I tossed my list out the window. I am looking for the man the Lord would approve off for me.
"I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfill our destiny, but our fate is sealed." Paulo Coelho
