For the teachers and mentors who were patient,

For the peers who supported, pushed and inspired,

For the places I’ve seen,

For the mountains, rivers, and oceans that have provided solace and peace,

For the people I’ve met along the way,

For those that doubted,

For the growth, and the growing pains,

For knowing that I am enough,

For the family and friends who have been there for every stumble and celebration,

I say thank you, thank you, thank you.
