Thanksgiving Reflection: HC Chatham Events Director Lejla Avdagic

This week, we've shared Thanksgiving reflections from HC Chatham team members. This last one comes from Events Director Lejla Avdagic.

My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is that everyone comes together to celebrate so there is a sense of unity. Also, it is a time in which people remember what they are truly thankful for although, I believe that people should remind themselves of what they are thankful for each and everyday. In addition to that, the food is also one of my favorite things! I love eating turkey! 

This year I attended Chatham University's annual Thanksgiving dinner with my sister. I was super excited because it was my first time going. There are countless things that I like and enjoy about Thanksgiving but the most important would definitely have to be the family time.
