January 30: Zeina


Ted is a retired business man who enjoys volunteering, traveling and spending time with family and friends. Ted has been a wonderful friend of Big Brothers Big Sisters and is a former chair of Big Brothers Big Sisters executive board. Ted is not only a great father to his three sons he is also a wonderful mentor to Little Brother, Rigo. Rigo and Ted have been matched for almost six years and plan on being friends forever. Ted has been the only male role model for his Little Brother, and Rigo truly values Ted's opinions and time spent with him.

Ted has been an instrumental part of Rigo's sport involvement and has been one of Rigo's biggest fans during his sporting events. Ted support and cheers his Little Brother's accomplishments and educational goals.

"Rigo is a sporty young kid. He is doing very well in basketball and football, and i think he has the potential to get a scholarship in the future if he stays focused in school and sports."

Despite their busy schedule these guys try to be consistent in their meetings; Ted has been a very influential man in his Little's life, and his Little is doing making very good decisions in life. Ted is an excellent role model who provides quality time and honest communication.

In honor of National Mentoring Month, we are featuring 31 of our awesome mentors in 31 days! Mentoring a child in your community is easy - if you have an hour a week, you can make a huge difference in the life of a child. Anything is possible! 81% of former Littles surveyed agree their Big gave them hope & changed their perspective of what they thought possible.
