During this holiday season, The Odyssey Online at ASU reporters want you to get to know us! Enjoy this holiday-themed post and learn what we are thankful for!

I am especially thankful for my family. I wouldn't be where I am today without them. My parents are absolutely amazing and are so supportive in achieving my goals. I swear you can never go a full conversation with my dad without him saying, "my son goes to the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism," and gloating about me. Even though I get a little embarrassed by that, it makes me smile.

My mom is my cheerleader, I can always count on her to be there for me. Several times she's offered to drive all the way downtown just to give me something that I forgot at the house. She is always willing to go out of her way to make me and my family happy.

My sister is my best friend. Even though we facetime maybe once every two weeks, it's like we talked five minutes ago. She never fails to make me laugh and she's always hyping me up. I especially love when she tells people to read my articles!

My family is my rock and they are all absolutely amazing. I'm thankful for them this holiday season.
