    Hey, everyone!

    With so many things going on day-to-day, we often forget about the impact others have on our lives and all that they do for us. This week, take a 5-minute break with TESOL to express gratitude and say thank you to someone you appreciate. A simple thank-you can mean the world to someone. Stay tuned for more #TESOLtake5 breaks!

    Take care, Natalie

    This week's take 5 with TESOL focused on taking the time to thank someone. Well, I would like to take this opportunity to thank two amazing people. My brother, Ahmed, and Sister, Heba, we call her Koki.
    I was in Sudan on vacation for two weeks, and they were just amazing! I had such a great time, and it was good to be home with my family.
    Thank you, Ahmed, for helping me with all my tech questions and sorting out my Internet, lending me your laptop for my meetings and presentations when mine didn't work, and for driving me around everywhere!
    Heba, well, Heba helped me with my make-up and hair! Lol, she's an expert! Thank you so much for helping me with video recordings that I kept repeating over and over again. The room was a bit dim. So, she had a great idea. She had one of those light rings used for taking pictures, but there was no stand, so she had to hold it up for me. Little did she know that she would be holding it up for 5 hours almost every day! She did without complaining!😂🙈
    Thank you so much for everything, Ahmed and Heba! You are the best! 🙏🏽
