Meet our April Match of the Month!

Meet Big Sister Jane and Little Sister Emily! This wonderful pair has been matched for almost two years! Jane is a senior at Denison and hopes to go on to Med. school in the future. Emily is in 8th grade and looking forward to high school. When the pair was first matched, Jane realized how shy and quiet Emily was during Lunch Buddy Tuesdays. With Jane’s outgoing and kind personality, Jane slowly got Emily to open up and share about her life and enjoy their time together playing games, doing crafts and just chatting and laughing! Jane and Emily have even used the lunch times to do 8th grade geometry! Jane shows the gift of being able to meet Emily where she is in her life and listens so well and intuitively, that Emily just wants to share about her 8th grade life. Jane and Emily have developed a great bond during their match and it has been a joy to observe it!
