EvenRights - How do you feel promoting creativity and Optimism can have a positive change in today's generation?
Breeanna Decker - “Society has made us to feel as though we don't have choices, like we must accept everything that is presented to as the only reality. I beg to differ. Being optimistic and creative are conscious choices that can lead to the positive changes. Promoting optimism and creativity gives us more power to no longer accept what we are fed and to direct impact change.”

EvenRights - What are your thoughts on everyone being equal with creativity and optimism but, being afraid to believe in themselves? What would you tell someone asking you for advise on this situation?
Breeanna Decker - “As a child of God, I am obligated to love. Regardless of personal feelings, I am to love my neighbor as God has love me. That is regardless of how people choose to live their lives. We are not called to agree with each other's life choices; We are not even called to be liked. We are called to love each other which is supreme and seperate from likes and agreements. Beyond that if one doesn't believe in oneself, why should anyone else believe in you. It starts from within.”
