Connie & Irie
Please help me raise donations for Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC! As a Big, I have been mentoring Irie, my wonderful Little, for almost a year now and it's been so rewarding to see her blossom. She has become more outgoing, brave, positive, motivated, and caring!
One of my favorite days with Irie was attending a Spoken Word Poetry Slam. By the end of the workshop, this typically shy girl was standing in front of the entire group impovising a beautiful poem pondering the meaning of life and her place in the universe. It was incredible!
On a personal note, I am so honored to have been awarded the Unsung Hero Award from KACF (Korean American Community Foundation) this Summer for my contribution and work with Big Brothers Big Sisters. I was one of three Korean Americans recognized this year for supporting the Korean community through grit and determination in service.
It would mean so much to me if you could donate a few dollars to help BBBS of NYC continue to support their programs because they provide incredible opportunities for kids and their families in the Korean American community, as well as many other underserved children and communities around NYC.
