What Are You Thankful For?

Thanksgiving is one of the most popular holidays in the United States. Typically you can find families and friends getting together to spend time with one another, and eat a wonderful feast together. During Thanksgiving, many people reflect on what is most important in their lives and what things they are most thankful for.

With Thanksgiving next week, IEI students and interns spent some time reflecting on their own lives. They thought about what they’re grateful for this holiday season and it turns out, there’s a lot to give thanks for:

Najah (student from Saudi Arabia): “My family is important. I will visit my family and we will eat dinner together.”

Yernar (student from Kazakhstan): “I’m thankful about the chance that my government gave me to get an education abroad. For example, right now I’m studying at the IEI to enhance my English language skills…it makes me very thankful and very happy because not all the people in my country can take this kind of chance.”
