Sister Iskenderian the Fantastic
In the words of Alex
If I could change my name to anything that I wanted I would be named Sierra.
I was born on 18 June 1942 and baptized in 1950. But I know I don’t look that old.
Of course my favorite day of the year is today, and especially if today is Thanksgiving.
If I could be anyone from the Book of Mormon then I would be Jacob. Why you may ask, because he was a young and handsome young man steadfast in the gospel. He was a quiet man, not always in the limelight but steadfast nevertheless.
I love Earth, it is my favorite Planet.
What do I love about Seattle? The waterways… water is cool! And also, of course, the young adults of the institute. However, I do miss my grandchildren.
Speaking of my grandkids, if I were to describe my family I would say that we love to have fun and laugh, but we also have our share of drama.
I went to college at the College of the Sequoias in California.
My favorite family tradition is the fact that we celebrate everything. Whether it’s Christmas or Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we will celebrate.
In my future novel my main character will be a Captain Kid (probably not a pirate) and his quest would be to travel the world rescuing children from ail and every injustice, joining his motley crew of justice fighters. (Captain Kid and the Lockness Monster coming in 2012)
My favorite apostle is President Eyering because he is so tender and soft spoken, but very serious about the gospel and his love for it. He’s in the forefront of the church but was not self-appointed but simply accepting his call from God.
**We are so grateful to have Sister Iskendarian at our institute! One of her greatest gifts is her ability to reach out and personally connect to others. She is a living example of love and charity .
