Congratulations to our November Community-Based Big of the Month, Christina Mehta!
What is your favorite thing about being a Big?
"There are so many reasons I love being a Big! In the course of the last six years, Rose and I have developed a strong bond. We can just pick up the phone and pick up a conversation like time hasn’t passed. I have enjoyed making memories that I can cherish for a lifetime. Rose and I love attending Big Day at the Lake, eating pizza, and making art projects together."
Do you have any advice for other Bigs out there?
"My advice to other Bigs is to be willing to try something new. I remember Rose expressing interest to go ice skating, and neither of us had ever gone ice skating before. We tried it and had a blast. Another example is I learned Rose is a huge music fan when I took her to Pops in the Park. I would have never learned this about her if we hadn’t tried something new and gone to Pops in the Park. We are always on the lookout for new adventures and have a lot of fun along the way!"
What are you most proud of in your match?
"Rose is blossoming into the most amazing person. Some of her most admirable traits are generosity and compassion. She has this wonderful and caring spirit! She always thinks about others, especially her family. I am privileged to be able to call Rose my friend, and my sister. It makes me feel whole to have her in my life."
Thank you for being a wonderful mentor, Christina!
