Aaliyah recently wrote this about her Big:
“Candy Brooks is very sweet, caring and thoughtful. It is hard to count the times she was there for me through the years, but I can tell you I don’t know what I would have done without her. When I felt lost, she found me. When I struggled in school, she helped me. When I felt powerless, she made me powerful. She helped me find my strength, when I was weak. She has helped me with my family issues and gave me advice, talked me through it. I trust her more than I trust anyone. She is my best friend. Candy and I have fun spending time together, do fun stuff together, and go to the parks, shopping and love to laugh a lot!”
Jakobie has this to say about his Big:
“Sid is someone who has always been there for me and a true supporter when my father or mother have not been there. He has guided me and shown me opportunities and possibilities I could only dream of. He showed me what I needed to succeed in my post-secondary planning throughout high school and middle school.”
