I've been a Big Sister for 8 years and have been matched twice. My first Little SIster just turned 21 years old in May. We were matched since she was 13 years old. My experience with Sam has been amazing. She is a part of my family and I couldn't imagine my life without her. My second match was in the School-based program. I was matched with a Little Sister that was repeating the 3rd grade because she failed the FCAT. I'm happy to report that she just graduated from the 5th grade. Being a mentor has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. It has taught me the real value of "time". Everyone has the ability to positiviely impact the life of a child. I thank Big Brothers Big Sisters for giving me the gift of friendship.
