e-Buddies of the Moment

Each e-Beat, we profile one of our many fantastic e-Buddies pairs! If you would like for your match to be profiled, please contact us!

This e-Beat we are featuring Grace and Erica!

Grace and Erica have been friends for the past three years. They like to chat about books and movies and which school subjects they like (and which they don't). The two high schoolers consider themselves good friends - but they've never met each other. Grace and Erica connect through e-Buddies and their only contact is through e-mail.

Grace, swimmer and Special Olympics Athlete, uses her computer for "school assignments and searching for fun stuff," but Erica is her only e-mail friend. Erica enjoys e-mailing with Grace and explains that they always have something to talk about. "Even though we've never met, I feel like we've become good friends and I always look forward to getting her emails."

Whether it's discussing which movies to see in the theater or sports, Grace and Erica show through their friendship that no matter what your differences are or where you are, you can find something in common to talk about. The e-Buddies program has made it possible for Grace and Erica to connect while living in different communities, but sharing experiences online. The two friends have grown a lot together and look forward to more years of friendship. "Grace and I started talking in middle school, are now in high school, and will hopefully still be e-mailing in college."
