This past week, I have become a big in my co-ed service fraternity and this coming week, I will become a big in my sorority. This is one of the most exciting adventures that will happen to me in my college career and I cannot wait to become best friends with my littles. Being a big comes with a lot of responsibilities and I am ready to take on this important role.
I have always been the oldest, so I have no problem becoming a big sister. I have always been considered the role model for my younger siblings. I was extremely excited to get bigs because I have never had an older sister, so having big sisters who I can look up to is something that I will cherish forever. That is why I am so excited to be able to be a role model to my littles.
Being able to be somebody's mentor throughout their college career is a special experience that not many people will get to have. This person does not have to be your best friend, although I hope that happens, but you still have to be a role model for them and help them get acclimated to your organization. I hope I can be the best mentor and friend I can be to my littles. I hope we can form this inseparable bond that no other duo will ever be able to understand.
While I do want to shower my littles in gifts that welcome them into their organization, I do hope that love and friendship will be the greatest give I can give. I want to be the person that is there when they are upset. I want to be a study-buddy when there are late nights and morale is needed. If they need a workout partner, I will be the one they can call. If they need to complain about their day (which don't we all) I hope I can be the first person they want to call to receive help. I hope to have late night movie nights and cozy coffee dates. I just hope I can give my littles amazing experiences that they will always remember once they are done with college.
I know how important it is to be a big sister since I already have a younger sister and brother. If my little is the oldest child or an only child, I hope I can be the best big sister ever. Ever since I received my big, I knew I wanted to become a big one day and be the best sister (or brother) I could be to these girls. I honestly can barely put my excitement into words.
Knowing I will be a big is an incredible feeling. After becoming a big for the first time on Tuesday night, it finally hit me about how important this experience is to me. I hope my littles love me as much as I love them and I hope that I can be the best role model, mentor, and sister (or brother) I can be.
