Kristy was inspired to become a Big Sister when looking for a more personal way to give back to the community. Kristy always admired her swim team coaches and 4-H leaders as a child, and was thrilled to be matched with Maya in June 2014.
Maya is 13 years-old, and loves spending time with her Big Sister. Maya and Kristy have had more adventures together than they can count. They have gone paddle boarding, to an air show, seen many movies and have even gone indoor skydiving!
The two have fun no matter what they are doing, and Kristy has enjoyed watching all the ways in which Maya has grown over the past three years. “My hope for Maya in the future is that she continues to grow as the beautiful person she is,” says Kristy. “If she keeps moving forward the way she is her future will be happy and bright. That’s all I can ask for!”
