Ashley B., 11th — I am very grateful for many things  … Starting out with how I have a brother who serves for our country in the Navy, leading off of that I am very thankful for our military who fights every day for our lives and freedom. I am also very thankful to live under a roof, and get fed every day and have clear access to water, let alone filtered water. I am also very VERY thankful for all the amazing people in my life, including my family and friends. I am very, very thankful for the legs God gave me so I can dance. I also am very thankful to have working ears so I can listen to music, and so I can also play piano.  I am so very grateful to have an amazing education at Lindbergh that I don’t have to pay for, and that there are many options of classes that I can take, because many people don’t have that opportunity.

Lastly, I am so thankful for an amazing dance team, the Flyerettes, because they’re like my second family, and we are blessed to be able to dance even with COVID … some dance teams don’t (have that option).
