Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
I lived in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico for two years, on a service and proselyting mission. The city was just starting to see the light at the end of a dark tunnel full of murder and corruptin, being the murder capital of the world. Although the place itself is a dump, the people are amazing. It will forever serve as the most signficant time and place of my life.

Laie, Oahu, Hawaii
Now I live on Oahu. My first time being on the island was in 2014, when I started college. It has been a year full of learning and adventure. I have made some of the best friends I have ever had shared some of the best experiences with them. I have come to know myself even better during the time spent here, shaping my future, which is why Laie has become one of my favorite places.

Big Island, Hawaii
In April of 2015, I travelled to the Big Island of Hawaii with my roommates. For a week straight, with no responsibilties whatsoever, we explored the island. We drove around, from Hilo to Kona, from the green sand beaches on the southern point to the beatiful valley of Waipiu. During the adventure, I became more aware of the beauty of this world, and all the God has made for us to enjoy. I realized then that I should not take it for granted. The Big Island has a special place in my many memories.
