My experience with Big Brothers Big Sisters has been generally positive. I find the most memorable moments happens during in person meetings, conventions, and events. It is so hard to choose just one – so I’d love to tell you about three.
The first moment was during my first year speaking at Big Brothers Big Sisters’ National Convention. I remember standing on stage and it was such an empowering moment, but I also noticed the gender, age and diversity gap.
it made me sad but also it was empowering and motivating to help support change and to see the growth in Big Brothers Big Sisters regarding Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
A professional memorable moment happened one year at National convention. I ran into a Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada staff member in the hotel hallway. We ended up talking for over an hour about equal Mentorship and its value and influence in everyday life.
