Bibiana, a Little Sister in the Big Brothers Big Sisters' program, had big dreams for herself including a strong desire to go to college. However, no one in her family had ever gone to college and she didn’t know where to start. Three years ago, her Big Sister, Amy Boardwine, started helping her research colleges, explore courses of study, and even toured several colleges and universities together. With Amy’s help, Bibiana was able to successfully navigate the often confusing world of financial aid and scholarships.
In June, Bibiana walked the graduation stage, having earned her high school diploma and Associate’s Degree with honors from the Davie County Early College. This fall, she will attend Salem College, where she earned multiple scholarships for her excellence in academics and service.
“My Big Sister may not be my Big Sister by blood, but she is my sister by heart. We have shared wonderful moments together and with each passing day, I am more thankful to have such a positive role model that has had a big impact on me and my entire family.” – Bibiana
