Thankfulness By- Jessica Higginbotham

Thankfulness. I really don’t know where to start because every day when I put my life into perspective, I realize how blessed I am. From being able to go to school and pursue my dreams to having a loving family who have had my back through every challenge; I have been given so much. The most blessings that I have received though, if I had to decide, come from the people in my day to day life. Thanks to my international family, with their support, I am constantly encouraged to work hard for my MCATs. For my fellow LDP members, I would like to say thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin, as I faced medical emergencies and stressful classes. We have had incredible times and we did it all together. Finally to my roommates, I would like to say thank you for welcoming me into your small family, for looking after me when I’m stubborn, and for putting up with my textbooks being all over the kitchen.  All of these people make small impacts on me every single day and, while they may not realize it, I couldn’t achieve what I do without them. For this Thanksgiving, I am most thankful for them; for each of their smiles, laughs, and for the light they bring into my life. Thank you all and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
