e-Buddies of the Month
Each month, we will profile one of our many fantastic e-Buddies pairs! If you would like for your match to be profiled, please contact us!
This month we are featuring Amanda and Virginia!
Amanda is from Maryland and is matched with her e-Buddy, Virginia, from Utah. They have been matched for ten months and have formed a wonderful friendship!
When asked what she enjoys most about e-Buddies, Amanda says, “I love participating in e-Buddies, because it's great to communicate with someone you don't necessarily know in person. I also love e-mail and computers, so when an e-mail comes from Virginia, I get very excited!”
Virginia agrees. “I like to e-mail friends on-line. Amanda is different from me.”
Both Amanda and Virginia look forward to e-mailing every week. Amanda also says: ”I feel that I can tell Virginia anything, and it’s almost as if she is there to listen. I also enjoy having updates on what is going on in her life. I feel that we have really connected, by exchanging information about our likes and dislikes, our careers, as well as our families.”
Amanda has found that, “I didn't realize how much the program would affect my life. It's not just an e-mail that arrives in my mailbox, but it’s a story. Some of the things Virginia has said have really made my bad days brighten up, which is very cool. I feel so privileged to be able to participate in the program.”
Congratulations to Amanda and Virginia, our e-Buddies of the month for July!
