Carrot and Ginger Soup - What She's Having

I have so much to be thankful for.

I was born in a time and place that allows me opportunities other women can only dream of.  While giving me everything they can, my parents raised me to be independent and to believe that I am capable. I went to public schools yet still had teachers that taught me not just to recite facts and count figures, but to think critically.I live in a city with crumbling infrastructure and systemic corruption, but it’s citizens are vibrant and creative, and they are quick to speak out against intolerance.

My life is far from perfect, but I am grateful for every minute of it.
