Who I Am ?

I'm a 25 years old student at BYU-Idaho. I was born in Mexico where my mom was baptized member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints when she was twelve years old. My dad converted to the Church a couple of years later, and we were able to be sealed as an eternal family in the Mexico City Temple.

At the age of 8, I had my first contact with computers. I started learning the basics and having a passion for technology. I moved to Mexico City when I started high school, and there, I felt the desire of having a career related to technology and math, my two favorite classes.

When I graduated from high school, I paused my education to serve a mission in Argentina from 2012 - 2014. In this time, I worked with different mission presidents in three different missions; I met great people and lived great experiences in that country.

After finished my mission, I flew back to the United States where I have lived since then. After carefully meditation and analysis, I started my degree at BYU-Idaho in September 2015.

My hobbies and favorite activities include programming, sports like football, soccer, and my loved baseball. I like watching movies and enjoy outdoor activities. I listen to different genres of music, I play the piano and the violin, and I like to dance too. I’m not a reader lover, but beside Church’s material, I enjoy reading mystery literature, with Dan Brown as my favorite author.
