Slacklining requires razor focus and the desire to transform fear. With slackline experience over the Swiss Alps, Faith Dickey appears to be fearless, but she reassures us that she’s human, just like the rest of us.
Faith has set the female world record for waterlining in 2013 by walking “The Queen Line,” a 460 waterline in France. Slacklining over water is even more difficult (if that is possible) because the moving water encourages your own body to follow the current.
Faith usually has more important things to focus on than a computer screen, but she did sit down to answer our array of weird and wonderful questions:
What’s your healthiest habit?
Slacklining, Highlining and Climbing.
What are 2-3 things that really make you tick?
Physical activity, music and ice cream.
When you think of gratitude, who or what do you think about?
I think about the gift of the moment (as it is the only time which truly exists!) I am grateful for choice, living, for a healthy body, for love.
What do you hope that your work teaches people?
I hope my work teaches others to be passionate, to walk through fear and to prevent it from guiding their lives.
What's Your Death-Row Meal?
Hard question! Probably a delicious salad followed by really tasty pizza and finished with mint-chocolate chip ice cream.
Why are you doing what you do?
I do it because it keeps my body healthy, challenges my fears, and aids in self-development. Additionally, the friends I have from what I do are priceless.
