What is the importance of faith in your life? Faith to me is being optimist and having compassion for those less fortunate than most. It helps me to find a positive energy to get through daily life. To me it doesn’t matter your background or religion; what matters is how positive and compassionate we can be and how we use faith constructively to make a positive difference.
How do you live out your faith? By building relationships with people who share a passion for life, whether it be with music, art, activism, history or philosophy. These relationships help me learn more about myself and the world around me.
