From the editors ‘Life can only be understood backwards but must be lived forwards’. The idea that each experience we have entails within it a lesson that we can take with us into our future endeavours is not new. It renders its head each time we recount an event that we feel has changed or altered us in some way. For me editing this edition of Interact for Europe magazine is an example of such an experience, primarily due to the fact that I have had the pleasure of working with a hugely talented and vibrant group whose efforts and thoughtfulness are clearly demonstrated with each turning page. This project has not only provided a platform for creativity, intelligent discussion and collaboration; but it has fostered friendships, jollity and most importantly constructive dialogue between individuals from differing walks of life. The process has resulted in a publication that addresses a diverse and multifaceted range of topics that are intriguing and relatable. Whether you’re looking for a piece which forces you to take pause and examine your views, to make you chuckle, or an article which causes your mind to wander and envision some form of escape from the mundanesss of the everyday, then there’s something here for you. So sit back and allow these words and images to penetrate the realms of your mind, I assure you, you won’t regret it! Sammy Hussain Magazine Coordinator

The challenge in this edition of Interact Europe was how can we aesthetically improve from the previous edition, with content packed with thought provoking articles, travel journalism and short stories. We hope to leave you eager after getting through the magazine demanding the release of the next and so on and so forth. When I was given the challenge to write an article on faith I kept thinking, how do I write an article on faith and how can I capture an attitude at the same time. ‘Discovering Faith in the Modern Age is based on a reflective experience my time skating and the people I’ve met at the skatepark also used as a social hangout. For one thing, I want to congratulate the team of contributors for all the hard work they’ve put into creating this and for being awesomely cool to work with. Michael, B.
