I am thankful that I can go to school and that my family has food and water. I am thankful that I have a house to sleep in and for everything I was blessed with,” said junior Emily Ly. “I’m thankful for all of the adventures and crazy experiences that I’ve gotten to encounter in life; the good, the bad and everything in between,” said senior Andrew Tran. “In addition to [being thankful for] my family, I’m thankful for everyone that I have met in choir. I consider them to be my second family and I don’t know what I would do without them. I’m also thankful for food and korean pop (kpop),” said senior Christine Nguyen. “I’m extremely grateful for my parents who work hard to provide for me. I’m also grateful for being able to go to a school where everyone is respected and appreciated — where I am free to be myself,” said sophomore Roger Nguyen. “I’m thankful for yearbook because it’s been a part of my life for a good while, 4 years and counting, and it helped guide me to my potential career path as a graphic designer. It has helped me grow as an artist in a way that I’d never thought I’d develop in,” said junior Aimee Tran. “I am thankful for good health because without it, I wouldn’t be able to run on the cross country team with all of my friends. I also appreciate all of my friends because they always make me smile and I look forward to school everyday because of them,” said sophomore Uy Tran. “I’m thankful for all the teachers at FVHS who have offered me guidance [about] life and insight [through] education. They helped shape me into the person I am today,” said senior Jon Geiger. “I am thankful for friends and family who are my backbone because they encourage me to become the best version of myself. I am also thankful for steak, chocolate and cheese!” senior Verena Awadallah said. “I’m thankful for all of my family and friends because they are always there for me, especially when I need help in school with homework or studying for tests and quizzes. I can always count on them to help me through tough times and I know that they can always count on me,” said junior Nicholas Nguyen.
