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 Paul and Beth!
Paul is from Texas and is matched with his e-Buddy, Beth, from Washington. They have been matched for about two years and have exchanged many e-mails!
Beth said that their friendship is special because, “even though we're not face-to-face friends, we have been able to share so much about each other via this great e-Buddy program. I think it's wonderful that Paul feels comfortable enough with me to ask me questions about my own interests along with his own. Additionally, I am always eager to check my e-mail because I know there'll be a message from Paul telling me about his day and asking me about mine.”
Paul and Beth have e-mailed about things that any two friends would like to share about, from favorite colors and TV shows to the everyday events. Paul especially likes to share with Beth about what is happening on his favorite TV show, Walker Texas Ranger.
Beth said that she thinks it is interesting that, “if we were to walk down the street we wouldn't recognize each other [but] I feel I really know him through talking with him via e-Buddies. The overall experience has benefited me, most definitely, and I think I can venture to say that Paul has been able to share this great experience with me.”
Congratulations to Paul and Beth, our e-Buddies of the month for November!!!
