Rosa Olguin has been matched with her Teen Sister Noemi since March 2013 in the DREAMR Project. Rosa has introduced new activities to Noemi, such as knitting and yoga. Rosa is supportive of Noemi's decisions. Rosa is an amazing example of what being a Big is all about!
Jennifer has been matched with Jade since February 2014. Jennifer learned that Jade needed help in math.

Now it is Little Sister’s goal to not only pass her math class, but to receive an A in the class! Thank you for being an amazing Big Sister! Keep up the great work!
