Her life was be completely changed

“I was introduced to Big Brothers Big Sisters at a personal level by a friend who decided to be a Big. We knew she’d help her Little Sister Silvera. What we didn’t know was that Nancy’s life would be completely changed by the experience. Isn’t it extraordinary that Big Brothers Big Sisters can do that for so many more people? 100 Women in Hedge Funds is so proud to be designated by Big Brothers Big Sisters as a Visionary Leader. Like Big Brothers Big Sisters, we put a great importance on accountability and our goal was to make a difference.”
