Chicago Dreams

Photojournalist of the Day: Ratree T. (Thailand)

I really love this city! Today we got to explore Chicago like going to the Willis Tower Sky Deck and the Adler Planetarium. I am very happy to be here.

In the afternoon, we met with Mary Kate Callahan who is a triathlon athlete who is currently training to hopefully qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games. She shared her story with us and how she pushed through tough times and competitions. It was very inspirational.

Thank you for this opportunity. I am grateful to the program staff for taking very good care of us.
