Spotlight on Mentors
Cheryl and Ebony
Describe your image
Cheryl and Ebony have been matched since October 2013. Over the years Cheryl has helped Ebony with homework and learning new tasks and activities. They often work on math problems and flashcards during their time together. They have also participated in cooking classes, played games, and participated in monthly activities with other matches.
Over the past 8 years, Cheryl reflects on her match saying she met Ebony as such a young shy girl and now she is growing up to be a strong and confident young woman. Like many, Covid-19 restrictions have made the past year challenging for Cheryl and Ebony. Although they haven't been meeting in person, they have communicated by phone and they write letters. Cheryl shares that she misses meeting with Ebony in person and hopes they can resume in-person meetings within the next few months. One of their first activities will be to work on an art project.
