Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County is pleased to recognize Big Sister Nadia as the Volunteer of the Month for January of 2020. Nadia is currently a student at UW Milwaukee obtaining a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. Nadia also works at Ascension Health as a Rehab Technician.
Nadia has been matched with Little Sister Kenesha for four years. Although Nadia is in Milwaukee working on her Masters degree, she still makes time for Kenesha, who will be graduating from high school this spring. Nadia has been helping Kenesha work on college applications and is excited for what life after high school could look like. Nadia's favorite part of being a Big Sister to Kenesha is that she is constantly learning from her Little Sister. They both share different perspectives on a variety of topics. Nadia loves that Kenesha shares her victories and challenges with her as if she is a part of her family. Nadia says that the match laughs constantly when they are together and says Kenesha makes even the most stressful days brighter.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is grateful to all of our volunteers who, like Nadia, are making a difference one child at a time. Congratulations to Big Sister Nadia on being our Big of the month!
