I needed to take a moment and thank you, not only for the time, effort and energy you give into shaping us into the best versions of ourselves, but also for presenting us with opportunities of a lifetime such as the Santa Barbara trip.
I use trips such as this one to spend quality time with the team and to learn and grow in wisdom from the countless lessons we face on the trip. The things we realize, experience and learn enrich our lives in more ways than we notice initially. These lessons add to our individual stories and journeys and we take home memories that serve us well into our bright futures.
I want to thank you both for genuinely caring about each of us and mostly for not giving up on us when we're clowns.
I firmly believe that what I have achieved thus far in earning a college scholarship to Seattle University has been made possible for me because of the great spirits I surround myself with.
Now, I have a great story to tell of my accomplishments because I was able to do the right thing. A lot of times it's difficult to realize what one is capable of. When going after something great in your life, it's hard to stay on the right track and it's easy to fall in the trap of being unsure. Thank you for believing in me when I was unsure and showing me the way when I didn't know where to go. I'm not sure if you realize you both have done all this for me. I just wanted you to know that I'm always grateful!
