Guam - The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guam held an appreciation luncheon at the Top of the Reef in Tumon. During the event, presentations were made to recognize the honorary Big Brother of the Year, Eloy Lizama of Shell Guam, while the group recognized Big Brother of the year Philippe Gerling from Nissan and Big Sister of the Year Karly O'neal from NavFac Marianas.

O'Neal says she became a mentor in order to give back to the community, saying, "I was paired up with a child from Tamuning. Her name is Melissa. She is a really wonderful young girl with a sweet personality and we just do activities on the weekends, depending on how she's doing in school. We choose what we like to do. We've been working on math a lot lately and tuning up her multiplication skills."

O'Neal says the organization provides activities for pairs at least once a month. She says she likes volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters because it's all about seeing a child smile.
