Hi, my name is Jona.

Make New Friends...and Keep the Old

In the two and a half years that I have been in the US, I have met only one member of my graduating class from High School in Nigeria- within America.

Today, in the span of five hours, I met four. 

This is one of the blessings that spending an off-campus semester in DC has brought me. I did not realize how much I missed my friends until I got to spend time with them today. It was great to realize that nothing has changed, and our relationships could pick up from right where they left off in May 2011. I'm blessed - and today I'm thankful for High School friends.

"Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold."

Below are some pictures from my amazing day.
