Irish/American Thanksgiving

November 28th, 2014 | Uncategorized

The holiday season, especially Thanksgiving, is time of the year that really makes you think of all you have to be thankful for. While, I am beyond thankful for all my family and loved ones back home who give me love and support, this year I am also thankful for my SCL family and all my friends here in Ireland, who have made my experience so far in Ireland amazing!


While, I definitely missed spending time with my family during this time, it was so great to be able to spend this holiday with my Sport Changes Life family in Ireland! It was an incredible night with great friends and some traditional Thanksgiving food. It was so nice to be able to reunite with the other American scholars and SCL community in Belfast for a Thanksgiving celebration. However, the highlight of the night came when Sport Changes Life surprised all the scholars with videos from our families back home. And I’m not going to lie…I definitely cried a little seeing and hearing my parents, and not to mention my little cousins who made an appearance 🙂 Thank you all…you’re amazing! Miss you and see you soon!!


Thank you Sport Changes Life for bringing a little bit of America to Ireland for and making my first Thanksgiving in Ireland a night to remember!
