In honor of Thanksgiving, some of our OAD scholars shared what they are thankful for this year. We are so thankful for them and all of our scholars, as well as our amazing OAD family far and wide!
Ange Sandrine: “I am grateful for God’s blessings and love in my life. I am also thankful for all those people who made my life colorful such as my lovely family, Open A Door and Muhlenberg College community and my good friends.”
Bonnette: This year, I am grateful to be going to such an amazing school, and I wouldn’t have made it if wasn’t for Jenny, my mentor, and Open A Door in general. I am also grateful for all the amazing people that have crossed my path, because I learned a lot from them and shared wonderful thoughts and experiences. Overall, I am grateful for my very loving and supporting family and friends and also thankful for happiness, a healthy body and life.
Malika: I am most grateful that I have the privilege of being in a vey prestigious college in the U.S through the help of OAD.
Patricie: I am thankful for the opportunities I have had in life. I’ve surely worked hard for them, but I think I am also just lucky! I am thankful for the day I met Barbara in Kigali, and for everything that has happened to date: from meeting my wonderful mentors and other amazing people, to being a student at Cal, to working at the SF County Transportation Authority! I am also grateful that my first month of work at SFCTA has been great so far. It hasn’t been so easy juggling school and work, nevertheless I am deeply grateful for this learning and growth opportunity. Last but not least, I am thankful for the people in my life that make my life so enjoyable, most especially my husband-to-be Kabasha and many other friends of mine!
