Best Buddies Inspires

By Sri Ripaka

When asked how Best Buddies inspires me, the answer is simple my buddy Bryan. Bryan and I have formed a strong friendship for so many reasons.

One reason is that Bryan has a very generous personality. Whenever I meet up with him the first questions he asks me is how I am doing and how is the family. He has also come out and supported me at various races regardless of the weather. These examples illustrate that he values me as a friend.

Bryan's ability to make the world a better place around him makes him an amazing friend. Bryan has been a big help organizing Best Buddies events in the Montgomery County area. Frequently, he will send me ideas about events. The fact that Bryan wants to make Best Buddies a better experience not only for him but others that participate in the program show what a wonderful friend he is.

Best Buddies inspires me because it allows me to come into contact with a population that I would not otherwise have the opportunity to work with. The friendships that I have formed with individuals such as Bryan have inspired me to stay committed to Best Buddies mission for the rest of my life.
