For more than 20 years I have wanted to become a Big Sister, but the timing was never right. This year, I decided the timing was right.
The difference is that in the last 20 years I have come to understand that the right time for the things your are passionate about is always right now. The exposure I have had to Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) by working with Neora as the Canadian Operations Manager has ignited my passion into action, and last September I submitted my application to our Vancouver BBBS organization.
I believe that being a Big will positively transform my life, and I hope that I can also have that positive influence on my Little. It has always been important for me to feel like I am giving back, but I am excited to be able to contribute undivided attention to one little girl. I hope this can enrich both of our lives with a meaningful, enduring friendship. I now patiently and passionately wait for my Little match.
