Jennifer and Keyana are "deeply invested" as Big Sister and Little Sister

Big Sister Jennifer was matched with Little Sister Keyana in July of 2011. Jennifer stated the best part of being a Big Sister is “having a long term relationship with Keyana. We learn so much from one other and are deeply invested in each other's lives.”

Keyana stated she looks up to Jennifer as a role model and friend: “I am so happy when I am with her. She has shown me love and different things that I would never have experienced without her help. She has opened my eyes to a lot of new opportunities and I'm very grateful.”
Jennifer fondly recalls the summer day when she took Keyana to the beach for the first time: “I had never seen sure pure, unbridled joy in her face before. She was scared to death of getting into the Gulf and once she did, I couldn't get her out!”

As a working wife and mom, Jennifer says being a Big Sister is a manageable and enjoyable way to volunteer while making a huge impact. She stated: “Big Brothers Big Sisters offers the opportunity to develop a lifelong relationship with someone.  It's not a short-term, one time or one-way transactional method of service.”
