Hi I'm Karina

Born and raised in San Jose Costa Rica, I am 23 years old and I love practicing judo - train hard :)

About Me

My name is Karina Tapia Navas; I love sports, especially Judo. Going to the beach is one of my favorites hobbies. I am the second of four children. I study Physical Therapy and I currently live with my older sister, her husband and my two little nieces Noelia and Camila. What I like most is to spend time with my friends and family. I love making desserts with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I’m a Mormon because that’s the lifestyle that I decided to have; it’s the correct path and the way in which I can help and be a positive example to people around me. I know that my parents made the best decision when they converted into the gospel, because that gave us the opportunity -to my brothers and me- to know the love of Heavenly Father for his children here on earth. I know that I’m on the right path because that’s what I feel in my heart.

How I live my faith

I constantly try to share the gospel with friends and people I know. I would love everyone to enjoy the blessings that I receive in my life, which is guided by the gospel.
