I’m Thankful for

My dream IB job.

My health.


The abilities God gave me to make a difference in the world.

My solid relationships in life.

WSO-> My outlet for correspondence with intellectuals about CFA vs. MBA, Clubs, Cleansing, and the like.

Needless to say I feel very blessed. Sound off what you're thankful for. As you can see I'm a little sentimental at the moment.

Enjoy some Turkey my brothers.

I'm thankful for my family, friends, health, and wealth.

I'm thankful for the opportunities I have received in my life. As a 3rd world immigrant who came here at a young age, I am also thankful to live in America and be an American. It has changed not only my own life's trajectory, but the trajectory of my lineage.

I'm thankful for this forum for teaching me so much about things that are pretty inaccessible to the average student. Truly democratizing access to the industry imo.

I'm thankful that God got me to this point in my life and career. I've had a lot of turbulence in my life and I always wonder how things would've turned out if a couple things in my life or my parents life went differently. I guess we'll never know.

Happy thanksgiving everyone!
