“Its easy to take things for granted”


“I’d say the happiest day of my life was the first day of vacation in the Dominican Republic. It was fun and all staying at the resort with nice weather, beaches, room service, all that stuff. But I’ve always been the kind person to enjoy other cultures. We rented a Jeep on our trip and drove around to different parts of the island, which was absolutely beautiful. And it really opened my eyes to how lucky I am. It was weird seeing someone else my age in a third world country. I realized how grateful I am because I can go home every night and expect food on the table. And not just food, but something I’d enjoy you know? It’s so easy to take things for granted in America, and going to the Dominican really grounded me, I’d say.”
