We asked William a few questions about friendships and these were his responses:
1. What quality do you admire most in your friends?
2. How has a friend inspired you or made you a better person?
My friend Aimee is love in action. The way she treats people, thinks about people and considers where people are coming from, has made me a better person.
3. In what ways do friends add value to your life?
The people I consider my friends are people who truly want the best for me. They are honest, supportive, candid and generous. And…hilarious at the same time!
