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 Kim and Leslie!
Kim is from Florida and is matched with her e-Buddy, Leslie, from Pennsylvania. They have been matched since January and have enjoyed developing a wonderful friendship through e-Buddies!
Kim enjoys discussing relationships, work and the weather with Leslie. She especially enjoys hearing about Leslie’s baby. Leslie enjoys talking about their families and their plans for the weekend. “Writing to Kim is a lot of fun! I love hearing from her and hearing what her life is like in Florida.”
When asked what makes their friendship so special, Leslie said, “We have fun and learn from each other. Kim and I write to each other every week! She makes my day whenever I get her e-mail.”
Kim said e-Buddies, “helped me [get to know] a new friend from far away and I am glad because I need a friend.”
We are so glad that e-Buddies brought a special new friend to both of their lives!
Congratulations to Kim and Leslie, our e-Buddies of the month for May!!!
