Thanks to all you lovely ladies who really talked up the program, I applied to be a Big Sister and I’m meeting my (prospective) Little next week!
She’s 12, oldest to a single dad, and is shy but opens up quickly. Any suggestions on things 12-year-olds like?? Or what to do with her? I don’t know if she has any other female figures in her life so I don’t know if I’m going to be helping with the whole puberty bit along the way.
I‘m pretty excited for this, but I of course have all the nerves of “Will she like me? Will I have fun ideas for her?” I’m even wondering what I wear to our first meet- will my “just came from work” business attire be intimidating? Will an approachable jeans and t-shirt seem unprofessional to her dad? My Match Specialist seems really enthusiastic, so I’m hoping I’ll get good support and ideas from him.
