There are hundreds of things to be thankful for. Everything is a blessing - even the things we take for granted, like our beds, and our clothes, and a place to live. It's an opportunity and a privilege even to have two working arms, legs and eyes. 

Oh, and that I graduate in three weeks. 

Bryan Almestica '22

My family and how much they support me. And my girlfriend, because she makes me a better person and helps me in my walk with God.
