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 feature Daunae and Gabrielle as our June e-Buddies of the Month! Daunae and Gabrielle just celebrated their one year anniversary as an e-Buddies match!

Daunae is from Pennsylvania and Gabrielle is from Oklahoma. This distance has not prevented the pair from developing a great friendship. As Gabrielle shares; "I really love how small this big world has become because of e-Buddies! It has made me feel like my best buddy is always there when I need her, even if she is miles away! Who ever thought that I'd make a life long friend just through e-mail? It's awesome and I have really come to love my bestest buddy like a sister!" Daunae shares that feeling by expressing that she enjoys e-mailing her e-Buddy and making a friend in a different part of the country.

When asked what makes their friendship special, Daunae shares; "I like talking and chatting with her about stuff. She is funny and is easy to talk to." Gabrielle explains; "Daunae is super cool! She is such an amazingly talented young lady who can sing and dance and is just always inspiring me! I feel like I can tell her anything and I know that she's always there for me and I hope that she knows that I am always there for her too!"

Both Daunae and Gabrielle share how surprised they are that they have been able to find such a great friend through a program like e-Buddies. They look forward to receiving one another's e-mails and learning what is happening in each other's lives.

Daunae finishes by sharing; "I like talking to Gabrielle about school, activities, and she talks to me about where she lives. She is nice and I hope to meet her some day." Gabrielle expresses that she is thankful that the door was opened for her and Daunae to become friends. She feels that her life has been forever changed by her e-Buddies friendship with Daunae.

Congratulations to Daunae and Gabrielle our e-Buddies of the Month for June!
