I am very thankful for the cohort that I have and the cohorts that surround me. I have really been blessed with the cohort that I am in that we are relatively drama-free, we are all really passionate about our field, and we support each other. It is a great feeling to know that this fine group of individuals will soon be my colleagues and I will get to call on them to help better the lives of individuals with disabilities. I learn from them everyday and we all have very different perspectives on things. We get through some really rough assignments together and I am very thankful for meeting these amazing individuals.
