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 Jason and Jason!
Jason is from Florida and is matched with his e-Buddy, Jason, from Texas. In case you were wondering, no, that is not a typo! They are both named Jason! They have been matched for 18 months and have exchanged many e-mails.
When asked what they like to talk about, Jason (TX) replied that Jason (FL), “Enjoys bowling with friends and often he will e-mail me to tell me about his weekend.” Jason (TX) said, “I think it is a great chance for my friend to work on his interpersonal skills.” Jason (TX) most enjoys when Jason (FL) gives detailed updates in his e-mails about what is happening in his life.
Jason (TX) said “I think its special in that we keep in fairly close contact with each other- whether we're discussing something he is excited about, like a holiday party, or something that might be upsetting him, like a friend in the hospital or his group home's van breaking down. We basically have a very nice, very normal friendship of two pals e-mailing updates to each other.”
Congratulations to Jason and Jason, our e-Buddies of the month for August!!!
