Danasia & Jenna
Meet our October Match of the Month, Danasia and Jenna! This month is also their Match-A-Versary, with them celebrating one whole wonderful year as BBBS team! Over the last twelve months, Danasia and Jenna have connected over their shared love of staying active playing tennis and visiting trampoline parks, doing arts and crafts together, attending BBBS events such as Art Night and the Big Little Fair, and just hanging out together talking. Jenna says that Danasia is positive and fun and helps keep her in that mood also and Danasia says she has had lots of fun this last year. Congratulations on being our Match of the Month and we can’t wait to see what you two accomplish together in the future!
Igniting potential in a Little includes expanding their horizons and teaching them new skills. One of Jenna’s favorite activities is playing tennis and when she introduced Danasia to the game, she really took to it and showed great natural ability. Jenna was so excited to teach Danasia a new activity and Danasia has been having a great time exploring the game. Jenna has also loved not just having the opportunity to encourage Danasia’s natural curiosity and passion for learning, but also being inspired by her to expand her own curiosity. Together, they are having a great time igniting the potential in each other, making them an excellent match!
The best matches empower each other to explore and to grow as people, and that’s definitely been the case with these two! Jenna is a naturally talkative and outgoing person and when they first met, Danasia was quite shy and reserved. Initially, Jenna wasn’t sure how to bridge that communication gap, but by letting Danasia take the lead, she quickly learned how to be more patient. This helped Danasia feel more comfortable with Jenna, and now she is super chatty and loves just hanging out with her Big, talking about anything and everything!
As much fun as Danasia and Jenna have had together playing, shopping, and chatting, great matches also work towards defending the full potential of the Little. As the new school year gets into gear, Danasia has expressed to Jenna that while she’s excited to see all of her friends again, she’s not so excited about the actual school work. Jenna quickly stepped up and volunteered to help Danasia with her homework any time she needed and having another trusted adult there to help her achieve her educational goals goes a long way in defending Danasia’s potential. Congratulations again to this fantastic match. We are so proud of you and wish you more fun and more growth in your second year together!
