Why do you support BBBS?

I love our community and want to see all kids have the same opportunity to grow and be successful. Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County creates a lasting impact in our community through one-to-one mentoring. One of my favorite events of the year is the BIG’s graduation ceremony held at the BBBS offices. Hearing the stories, seeing the smiles on the kids faces, and knowing the impact that having a BIG has had on them is so powerful and proves the value of this amazing organization.

 

The power of one-to-one mentoring is really amazing. I love meeting matches and hearing the impact they’ve had on each other’s lives. My wife and I have both been BIGs, so we know first hand the impact of this organization. There is no better gift you can give a kid than hope and opportunity. Everyone deserves to have a few people in their corner, rooting them on and helping them along their journey. BIGs, and the parents that recognize the need for BBBS, are helping out our community in such an impactful way. Thank you to all our BIGS!

Who served as a mentor to you growing up?

My Dad has always been one of my biggest heroes. He taught me to speak less, listen more, and always be kind to people in need.
