BBBSCI Class of 2021: Evelin and Stephanie

Match: Little Sister Evelin and Big Sister Stepahnie Wade 
Match Date: October 16, 2019
High School: Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet High School 

Little Sister Evelin and Big Sister Stephanie Wade have been matched together for 1.5 years. Evelin is looking forward to graduating from high school this Spring and is still considering her plans for the future. Evelin and Stephanie are going to miss being a part of our program!

When Evelin and Stephanie were first matched together, Stephanie shared that Evelin was more timid in the beginning and didn’t like opening up. Now, Evelin continues to open up to Stephanie more and more and they talk about absolutely everything going on in their lives. 

One special memory that these two share is when she took Evelin to try pottery. Stephanie enjoys making pottery and said that Evelin is naturally artistically talented and it’s so beautiful to watch Evelin make pottery pieces! Another special moment that sticks out for Stephanie was when she was over at Evelin’s house one day and they were hanging out in her bedroom. Stephanie noticed the first ever “match photo” they had taken together hanging on the wall in Evelin’s room. Stephanie was so touched to see their photo hanging there and immediately realized the gravity of their relationship and how important it was to Evelin. 

As Evelin prepares to move into this next chapter of her life, Stephanie wants to leave her with this message, “You make me so proud just to have known you and see how much you have grown over the past few years. You are a beautiful, responsible, selfless, creative, and compassionate woman and I am so unbelievably proud of who you have become.” 

Good luck, Evelin!
