Mentoring Relationship Specialist, Kristen Berrett, says that Little Sister Sami and Big Sister Angie are the most creative activity pickers–they do the biggest variety and the most creative activities out of any matches that she’s ever met! Little Sister Sami mentioned some of her favorite things they’ve done together are going to concerts, an Indy 500 Scavenger Hunt, baking Christmas cookies and going to museums. Little Sister Sami had this to share about her relationship with Angie, “I feel that I have personally grown so very much through my time matched through Big Brothers Big Sisters. I am more confident because Angie always supports me. She is like a best friend to me. Angie has taught me to go after what I want and how to work hard to get it. My message to Angie is this–you probably don’t know much you have impacted me and influenced my life. You are truly one of the most kind-hearted people I know.”

Big Sister Angie shares, “It’s hard to articulate the impact of our relationship, because at this point, it feels like Sami has always been part of my life. We do things together that I wouldn’t do on my own and she has definitely broadened my horizons as well. To Sami I would say–I love you, sister!”
