member spotlight w/ Christopher Bances
We asked Christopher...
1 What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
2 What are you thankful for?
My name is Christopher Donaldo Bánces Serrano, but you can call me Chris. I was born in San Antonio La Paz, Guatemala and I grew up in the suburbs of Guatemala City. I attended Pre-K and Kindergarten at a catholic school. From an early age I was taught the value of community and being involved. When I moved to the U.S. I always made it a part of my life to be part of something great. Fast forward to today and I still treasure involvement and community. That is why I am part of Ad Society and many other student organizations. I am a third-year advertising student and one day I hope to become an account manager or work on the clients marketing team. Later in life I want to start my own business and provide scholarships to students in Guatemala.
Pie or Cake?
3 What’s your guilty pleasure TV show?
Thanksgiving fun facts Sarah Josepha Hale, the woman who wrote “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” convinced President Lincoln in 1863 to make Thanksgiving a national holiday, after writing letters for 17 years campaigning for this to happen.
The first Thanksgiving was eaten with spoons and knives — but no forks! Forks weren't introduced to the Pilgrims until 10 years later and weren't popular until the 18th century.
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1924 with 400 employees marching. It featured only live animals from the Central Park Zoo. source: www.allparenting.com
