FORT WAYNE, In. -- After an unsuccessful match, 12 year old Aquaries is back on the Big Brothers Big Sisters waiting list.

"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.
