Verna Christina is more than just a mentor. For her Little she is a role model, a friend, and a hero. Unfortunately there are so many young children that need a positive influence in their life and people like Verna that are stepping up to provide the needed support and love are truly admirable. Verna tells her story...
Personally, I was the baby of 6 in my family so I never knew what it was like to be the older sibling. I knew how much I looked up to and depended on my siblings and wanted to do that for someone else. Plus, I used to be a teacher and later actually worked at BBBS Miami so I knew first hand the kind of impact that mentoring had on youth. I actually went to the organization to get info on volunteering and ended up getting hired first! It was crazy and seemed to be fate.
