My little sister. What? You don't think we look alike?
Yes I know we don't look much alike, but she really is my sister. Years and years ago I was a volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Arizona. Chaunte was given to me as a little sister and I had to post this picture because I love this girl so much and I am so proud of her and what a fabulous adult she is.
Let me give you a quick rundown of all of the reasons I am proud to be her big sister:
She just bought her first home. She not only qualified for the loan, but saved enough to buy all of the furnishings etc.
She is engaged to be married to a wonderful man named Chris (CJ). They have been together for years and he is so nice and hardworking and he treats Chaunte like a queen.
She is the operations manager at Old Navy in Gilbert and has been working there for three years. I love that she is so responsible and that she has stuck with the same employer. She is only 21 but she seems so much older because she is wise and stable and easygoing. She is honest and hardworking.
I could talk to her for hours on end because she is a great conversationalist and just all around fun. She is fnny and smart.
Chaunte is one of those people in life who doesn't make excuses, she just goes after what she wants. She has always made good choices no matter what people arond her were doing. She was raised around gangs and crime, but instead chose to work and be happy.
If anyone has ever considered volnteering for a child mentoring program like BBBS, you should do it! Chaunte has been such a blessing in my life!
