“I’ve made a lot of friends on the team. The people here are really nice,” Tom said.

Compared to her old town, Oakwood is completely foreign.

“Oakwood is really different because it’s all one community and I’m not used to knowing everybody,” Tom said. “Thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome.”
