 I know there are other young Muslims out there who feel the pressure of the west. To act Muslim and be Muslim in the west, does anyone have any tips, to not fall in the trap of western soicty?

Never conform to the Western Way.  \

Many Muslim youth in the West seem to be conforming to the western way of living.  I think this has to do with "peer presure".  But i believe that peer presure shouldn't be an excuse to throw away ur religion.  I am currently going to a school in the West where i'm the only muslim girl in my school.  My peers tell me to act like them but i tell them that without my islamic way of living my life has No meaning.
