e-Buddy of the Month
By Priscilla Garza
e-Buddies Program Manager, Florida
This is a feature of the e-Beat in which we will profile an e-Buddy every month! If you would like to be profiled, please e-mail Priscilla Garza at PriscillaGarza@bestbuddies.org .
This month we are featuring Tara and Elizabeth! !
Tara is from Alaska and is matched with her e-Buddy, Elizabeth, from Virginia. They have been matched for two years and have exchanged over 1,000 e-mails!
Elizabeth, also known as “Liz”, enjoys that e-Buddies gave her the opportunity to get to know someone that she might not have been able to meet on her own. “Tara lives in Alaska, and I split time between Texas and Washington, DC, so we probably never would've met had it not been for e-Buddies.”
Tara and Liz’s friendship is special because they know that they can depend on hearing from each other regularly. Liz said, “I know that I can count on hearing from Tara every day. Even if it is a short email just to check in, we both make sure that we write each other every day. She is a friend that I can count on!”
Since they were matched through e-Buddies, both Tara and Liz have gotten married, and Tara has even had a baby! They have had a lot of exciting things to share with each other.
Congratulations to Tara and Elizabeth, our e-Buddies of the month for October!!!
