"I wanted to talk to my Big Brother but he didn't answer and I just kept calling and it would go straight to voicemail."
Aquaries was matched about a year ago, but his Big quit the program, landing Aquaries back on the waiting list. He hopes this time to find a Big that will stick around.
"I just want somebody to hang out with and have fun with because most of the time I'm just at home by myself, bored. I want somebody to hang out with that can teach me stuff I don't know."
He'd like to learn to golf and play piano. Aquaries said in return, he could teach his big how to play pool. Aquaries enjoys sports:
"Basketball, bowling, playing catch, and baseball."
And he knows a few other things he'd like to do:
"Go to the zoo or go-carting."
From time to time, he could use a little help.
"Help with reading, school-wise... how to have respect for others."
He will turn thirteen this June. Despite only being in middle school, he already has his career picked out.
"I want to be a preacher when I grow up. I started feeling that I wanted to be a preacher when I was 11."
Aquaries has a higher chance of achieving his goals with the support of a Big Brother. To learn more about mentoring, call Big Brothers Big Sisters at 456-1600.
