Editor's note: Earlier this year, the Tony Blair Faith Foundation announced the Faith Shorts Film Competition asking young people of all nationalities between the ages of 14 and 27 to submit short films on how faith inspires them. Eleven entries have made the final round in 14-17 and 18-27 age categories combined. The two winning entries will be announced on Nov. 26 and starting the 15th Nov. HuffPost Religion is sharing one film each day, until the day the winning films are announced. Enjoy!

What I most enjoyed about Faith shorts was the opportunity to share with the world how my faith helped me to overcome cancer. The disease taught me a lot of things, but through making my film I came to realise the most three important things I learned from this battle are:
  • Life will never stop changing. You have to be ready for the next step.
  • There are more people who care for you than you think so start showing them how much you love them.
  • Faith is what encourages me to keep fighting and never give up. It's an amazing feeling when you can say "hey problem, you don't scare me, because my faith is stronger than you!"
Besides this I have always wanted to be a filmmaker. I feel a connection with camera. I feel I can convey things in film that I cannot express in words.
