Q: How did you come across Big Brother’s Big Sister’s and what made you want to become a Big?
A: “A representative from Big Brother’s Big Sister’s came to HEAPY several years back to discuss the school-based mentoring program at Southdale Elementary School.

Q: What do you enjoy most about being a Big?
A: “Making a difference in my Little’s life and watching him evolve over the years.”
Q: What positive impacts come from being a part of Big Brother’s Big Sister’s?
A: “To me, the Big Brother’s Big Sister’s program instills confidence in kids and gives them an outlet to enjoy and do things that maybe was not possible before. I think having a positive role model in these kids’ lives will have a lasting impact.”
Q: What is your favorite activity you and your Little love to do together?
A: “I would say, going to sporting events and eating Chipotle!”
