Match Date: November 13, 2018
Little’s High School: Victory College Prep
Little Sister Lashaya and Big Sister Monica Munoz have been matched together for 5 years. Lashaya will be graduating from Victory College Prep in May 2023. Come the Fall Lashaya is planning to attend college at Purdue University.
During their time together in the BBBSCI (Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana) program Little Sister Lashaya and Big Sister Monica enjoyed trying different breakfast restaurants, visiting a haunted house/ghost tour, attending BBBS (Big Brothers Big Sisters) agency sponsored game night and Big Future Etiquette dinner. Lashaya shared the most she has gotten out of her relationship with Monica is being able to break out of her shell, express who she is, and taught her own values. Monica looks forward to hearing about and witnessing Lashaya’s transition into adulthood.
Monica said if she could share one thing with Lashaya about her impact on her life she would say, "I have watched you grow from a shy teenager into a thoughtful, funny, confident young woman. I have genuinely enjoyed watching you grow and getting to be a part of your life. You have brought me a lot of joy, laughter, and so many wonderful memories. I have appreciated the ways in which you were always willing to share your life with me, entertain my questions, and try new foods! You have given me a chance to enjoy Indy (a city that is not my own) and see it through your eyes, and I so appreciate the ease in which we share space together." The BBBSCI Family will be rooting for both Lashaya and Monica after graduating from the program. We wish you both the best of luck!
