First and foremost, I’m thankful for my amazing family and friends. 2017 has been my best and hardest year thus far, but I accomplished a lot. I gained several new skills and experiences this year, including learning to fly, nailing down my nutrition, completing my first internship, and finishing my best cycle race. I’m thankful to have a job that I love, and also where I get to work with my best friend. The LDP has given me so many learning opportunities and the confidence to always try new things. I made some of the best friends of my life in the program.
