"I would never have been able to succeed in life, school, and my career without the support of someone older, wiser and more experienced than myself," says Big Sister Angela. "I rose on the shoulders of others, and I wanted to give a young person that same kind of boost."
Angela has gone far in her life, thanks to mentors she had. As a public defender, she’s also seen what can happen to girls who don’t have good guidance or strong role models in their lives.
That’s why she’s committed to helping her Little Sister Amber succeed. And thanks to knowing Angela, Amber wants to go to college, make smart choices and be successful in her own life. Knowing how much her Big Sister Angela believes in her makes her dreams seem possible!
But Amber doesn’t plan on becoming an attorney like Angela. She wants to be a dramatist, writer or poet. In fact, she’s written a poem that describes how she feels about their powerful friendship.
I’ll always love her because she’s been there
Through thick and thin
And I’m proud to call her
My sister, my family, my friend
