Welcome to Liz's Personal Fundraising Page
Thank you for visiting my Bowl for Kids Sake fundraising webpage! I hope you will join me in my efforts to help support Big Brothers Big Sisters.
As many of you know, I have been a Big Sister for almost six years. Maya and I were matched when she was just 10 years old and on May 24th she'll turn 16. Maya is a beautiful, spunky (and sometimes sassy, just like her Big), bright young woman who always makes me laugh. When first matched, Maya was having her fair share of struggles especially in school. Maya and I would meet weekly to grab ice cream, walk around the plaza, or go to the library. We focused on changing her overall attitude at school while also making homework and studying the number one priority. She's worked really hard over the past couple of years and it's really paid off. This year she's made the honor roll at school and keeps herself busy running track. She's motivated to get a job when she turns 16 and has dreams to go to college when she graduates.
When I first signed up to be a Big I had no idea what kind of an impact it would have on me and I certainly didn't think I'd still be here six years later. It wasn't always easy to stick with the program but I'm grateful that I did. I truly believe that BOTH Maya and I are better people because of the BBBS program. I really look up to Maya (both literally and figuratively) and am proud to call her my Little (but bigger than me) Sister. She has a bright future ahead of her and I can't wait to be there to watch it unfold.
