e-Buddies 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 pair every month! If you would like to be profiled, please e-mail Priscilla Garza at PriscillaGarza@bestbuddies.org .
This month we are featuring Kelly and Amie!
Kelly is from Virginia and is matched with her e-Buddy, Amie, from Florida. They have been matched for over two and a half years and have sent over 800 emails!
When asked what she most enjoys about being involved with e-Buddies, Kelly replied, “I like coming home and checking my email and getting messages. I like talking in the Chat room. I meet a lot of people in there.” Amie said she enjoys e-Buddies because she loves talking to Kelly. “We email each other at least every other day. I could be having a rough and stressful day and I come home and I have an email from Kelly. Reading her emails always put me in a good mood.”
Kelly said that her friendship with Amie is so special because Amie e-mails her so often. She also said that her friendship is special because they share a common love of “plays, musicals, and the TV shows 7th Heaven and Gilmore Girls.” Amie said, “We have a lot in common. We both love Gilmore Girls. We always talk about the new shows. Also, we both love shopping and going to the movies. I love talking to Kelly. I think everyone should join e-Buddies.”
That is what we love to hear! Congratulations to Kelly and Amie, our e-Buddies of the month for February!!!
