Athena is an eight-year-old girl who lives with her mom, sister and brother. Athena likes to cook and has made her family cheese tortillas and eggs. She also enjoys soccer and t-ball. Athena’s favorite thing to do at school is to have recess and read.  She especially likes popup books. If she had three wishes, Athena would like to have a magic horn like a unicorn, wings so she can fly, and a rainbow mane and tail.

By becoming a Big Pal, you’ll get the chance to be a kid again by mentoring a Little Pal like Athena. Big and Little Pals spend few hours each week together doing normal, everyday activities like cooking or just hanging out. These little moments can turn into life-changing, impactful friendships.
