My Little Sister has Helped Me Grow

03-Apr-2016

She reminds me of what it's like to just be a kid and have fun.

 I decided to join big brothers big sisters just over 4 years ago now.

I thought it would be a nice way to reach out to a child and become a mentor to them.  What I didn’t realize was that my little sister has helped me grow just as much, if not more than I believe I have helped her.  She reminds me of what it’s like to just be a kid and have fun and how much simpler life is when you look at things through the eyes of a child.

We have been matched for 4 years and have done a variety of different things together. Movies, baking, board games, tobogganing, going to the beach are some of the few activities that we have done.  The most important thing is that we laugh and have a great time together.  Although it is not always easy to find the time, we meet once a week for a few hours and I definitely enjoy our time!

It has been a pleasure watching my little sister grow into a bright young lady and I am honored that I have been a part of her life for the past 4 years.
