Finally took that step!

After hearing so much about my sister's "little" at the Big Brother Big Sister organization and after thinking so much about becoming a "big" I submitted my application, passed the enrollment class and the background check. Last week, I was called with the exciting news that they had a match for me! A sweet girl named Chasity. After speaking with two match specialists, I decided to not accept the responsibility to be this girls "big". The search will continue to find the perfect match for both me and the little.

I am very excited for the future that I will have with this organization! The opportunities that they provide the volunteers and the "littles" and the effect that they have in their community is something that I can support financially and with my time. Big Brother Big Sisters of Tampa Bay's mission statement is "To help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with measurable impact." I hope that I do not limit myself to just one "little" but that I can have an influence on my entire community.
