We interviewed two of our self-advocate volunteers about Thanksgiving, what they’re thankful for and how they plan to celebrate!
1. What does Thanksgiving mean to you?
Abeo: Praying together as a family and always staying together.
Lindsey: It means being with my family like my cousins, grandparents and friends. Everyone gathers together and enjoys the company.
2. What are you most thankful for?
Abeo: To God, for the roof over our heads, not telling lies and being together.
Lindsey: My family and that I get to help my mom cook and set up for Thanksgiving.
3. How do you celebrate Thanksgiving?
Abeo: We go over to our cousins house, eat and play games.
