Big Brothers Big Sisters

Sanaa and her Big Sister, Jeanine, have enjoyed getting to know each other through shared interests, like reading books and painting. Jeanine is part of the staff at Appomatox Regional Library System and has a background in teaching, which is a plus for Sanaa who aspires to be a teacher. During their weekly meetings, they talk about everything from how their week is going to big topics like getting in to college and how to deal with a bully. Sanaa says that having a Big Sister makes her feel happy and Jeanine says visiting Sanaa makes her “feel pumped up for the rest of the day!” Big Brothers Big Sisters is proud to make matches, like Sanaa and Jeanine, in the Tri-Cities.
