Lacey and Lixi have been matched since November of 2013. Lixi was in fourth grade at the time and was pretty shy at their first meeting. However, it didn’t take long for Lacey to pull Lixi out of her shell and the two of them began talking more and having fun at each visit. Lacey is currently a sophomore at High Point University and is studying Psychology and plans to go to graduate school to get her PhD. Lixi is in 5th grade at Fairview Elementary school and says she would like to be a veterinarian when she grows up. Lixi says that having Lacey as a Big Sister is β€œAwesome!” Lacey said, β€œIn twenty years, I would like Lixi to be able to reflect on her time with me and remember always having something to look forward to every week during school. No matter if she’s having a bad week or if she’s upset about something, she could always count on me to be there every week to talk to her and see how everything is going!”
