Big Sister, Kim and Little Sister Onna’Syaja were matched on January 29, 2020. Onna’Syaja and her family moved to Indianapolis last year and since then, she has struggled to find positive friendships. Although she was nervous to meet her Big Sister, she was looking forward to having a mentor.
Kim and Onna’Syaja hit it off instantly and began chatting away during their match introduction. Their first outing, they plan to go to the library to get to know one another’s “stories,” as a theme for their friendship.
This match was lit with the support of Jim and Cindy Barkley.
