During their time in the BBBSCI (Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana) Program Little Sister Warnaesha and Big Sister Emily enjoyed trying new foods, creating new recipes, visiting new places, game nights, and going with BBBS (Big Brothers Big Sisters) to The Chicago Cubs game. Warnaesha has most gotten from her relationship with Emily a very close friend, someone who she can talk to about anything with and who is like an actual sister. Emily has most gotten from her relationship with Warnaesha is feeling valued using her experience to help her and being the person, she wishes she had.

Emily said if she could share one thing with Warnaesha about her impact on her life she would say, "Warnaesha has helped me not take things so seriously. She helps me put things in perspective and she has helped me expose myself to new experiences. Warnaesha helps me open my heart to the similarities we all have." The BBBSCI Family will be rooting for both Warnaesha and Emily after graduating from the program. We wish you both the best of luck!
