Matched: April 2016
Committed Big + hard working Little = Amazing Story!
Isaac and his mom moved to the US from Liberia when Isaac was younger so Isaac could have a chance at a better future. In 7th grade, he was bullied by a peer but Isaac decided to try football as a way to find his niche and make friends. He has been a top performer academically and athletically ever since. Seeing his teammates with their dads in the stands was tough, but his Big Brother, Bunky stepped in in a huge way to fill in some of the missing pieces. Bunky has provided guidance, support, encouragement, and so much more. As a result of Bunky’s dedication, Isaac has been able to navigate not only being in a new country, but also has been able to achieve so well academically, that he has been accepted into many universities! Isaac graduated this year as one of the top students in his class (even with IB and AP classes) and has chosen to attend the University of Florida to study Engineering and hopefully to play football! With Bunky’s guidance in the area of applications, Isaac has been awarded enough scholarship money to cover his entire freshman year! Bunky has been there every step of the way to help Isaac’s dreams become reality. Bunky recently shared, “I may have handed Isaac a bat, and escorted him to home plate, but he’s the one who hit it out of the park!”
