Today I am thankful for living in a place where I have access to a lot of different things – especially people and ideas. As someone who loves to learn – and really believes in learning something new each day – living in a big city has presented me with some great opportunities to not only be exposed to some of the best and brightest minds, but to meet them. For example, I’ve heard these people speak publicly: Neil deGrasse Tyson (Astrophysicist, Director of the Hayden Planetarium, author), the late Ted Sorensen (speechwriter for JFK, presidential advisor, lawyer), Helen Thomas (author and former member of the White House Press Corps), and the President of the Republic of Kosovo, just to name a few. If I wasn’t living right here, right now, I might not otherwise have these opportunities.
