Little Sister Faith and Big Sister Sarah Janssen have been matched together for 2 years. Faith, graduating as Valedictorian of her graduating class, is planning to attend DePauw University in the fall to study Psychology and Neuroscience.

Faith is also the recipient of a $2,000 Be Big Scholarship to be used towards room/board, textbooks, tuition, or other expenses that may be incurred in the first year of studies. This scholarship was made possible with funding from Frank Davis Scholarship Fund. Congratulations, Faith!

When reflecting on her time with Big Brothers Big Sisters, Big Sister Sarah Janssen shared that over the years, her relationship with Little Sister Faith has become much more open and filled with personal connections compared to the day they first met. Sarah shared that they loved getting out of their comfort zones and trying new things together. When asked about her relationship with her Big Sister, Faith shared this, “When I see Sarah, I feel inspired because she embodies what I value; hard work, dedication, and not to settle. Sarah has pushed me to finish high school strong so that I can be prepared for college. I have gained so much from this match, but I think the biggest thing I have gained is a friend and confidant (notice the Golden Girls reference).”
