We’ve all heard the phrase “the student becomes the master”. Some of us have even seen it play out with characters such as Luke Skywalker or Neo (aka Mr. Anderson). In my case, the Little becomes the Big. The Big Brother, that is.
When I was 9 years old, I became a Little Brother. 27 years later, I have become a mentor myself to a young boy, through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mass Bay. It has been an amazingly rewarding experience, and I would urge anyone who is looking for more meaning in life to do the same. It is easy and fun.
I have started a blog to capture some of my experiences as a Big. Please do follow our adventures.
