Faith is an open, empathetic individual who stands with anyone who has ever felt less than. She has supported students who have been bullied, volunteered with homeless individuals, and stood tall with the LGBTQ community. Her aim is to help others find their voice regardless of age, sex, race, religion, social class, or identity.

As a high schooler who has been sober for two years, Faith has become a sponsor for women in recovery from drugs and alcohol. She has spoken at Tufts Medical School, Salem State, and Faneuil Hall, educating students and the public via her personal story, struggles, and accomplishments.

We applaud Faith’s dedication and spirit and are proud to award her a Mark Bavis Leadership Foundation award. We wish her the best as she continues her studies at North Shore Community College this fall.
