2009 was also the year I met my ‘little brother’, Jacob, through Big Brothers Big Sisters. I’ve been blessed to be part of some great movements, but this moved me most of all. It gave me an opportunity to see Toledo in its colorful prism. You allowed me a temporary escape from medicine, with my incredible little brother by my side, I discovered your streets; it is the perfect medium for mentorship. Big Brothers Big Sisters pushed me to see your culture, your passion, your festivals and spirit as I strived to create experiences for a young man ready to take on this world. It forced me to acclimate and understand a town I never knew existed. In an attempt to help another individual grow, I found my own humility of a questioned city begin to flourish.
