The most important thing Anne did was to stay positive herself as much as possible. She wrote in her diary: "Whoever is happy will make others happy too. He who has courage and faith will never perish in misery!" She never gave up. Always looking to the future, she revised her diary with the intention that it would someday be published.

Other things she did were to paste pictures of movie stars on the walls of her bedroom. She encouraged the others to celebrate Hanukkah and made a lampshade hat and gave presents to the others.

Anne was a very optimist person. My first example, is that she stated the quote of how bad the world is now but has belief that people are still good at heart. Another example, is that she always encouraged people to think positivley and not be misarble becuase they are already in a terrible situation. My finale illistration, is that Anne always looked foward to the future. She even hoped one day that her diary would get published and it indeed did.
