Congratulations Armando on being named November's Big of the Month!
Armando has been matched with his Little, Jacob, since
November of 2014. They are getting ready to celebrate their one year match
anniversary! Jacob is a very advanced student and is currently taking a higher
level math than most kids his age. Armando, being an engineer, has been very
helpful whenever Jacob doesn’t understand something. Since helping Jacob with
his school work, Armando has seen Jacob become more confident in his work and
has not needed as much help in math anymore. Armando has also helped introduce
many new things to Jacob, including throwing a football and exercising.
Armando is an ideal Big because he is consistent. He meets
with Jacob every Saturday despite his busy schedule. Since being matched he has seen Jacob become
more self-confident and social.
Jacob's mom has seen a huge improvement in Jacob's self-confidence too. Pino says, "Jacob sees everything as black and white. He is a very straight laced child. Armando has helped him have fun, loosen up, and enjoy being a kid."
Thank you Armando for your selfless service to a child in
our community and congratulations on being November Big of the Month!
