Brittany's Bigs: Stephanie Johnson

Stephanie Johnson finds the time to makes a big difference in the lives of local youth within the community, even though she's a deployment manager for the Air Force at Dyess Air Force Base.

Johnson joined the Big Brothers Big Sisters program over the summer after realizing she was already a role model to her own little siblings, why not help guide someone else.

 "Well, I know a lot of the kids in the program really need the help  and I figured why not volunteer my time to someone who needs it", said Johnson.

With Johnson's biological little siblings living far away, she's happy to have eight-year-old Amirah Cole to hang out with and thinks other people in the community should seek this unique type of friendship offered through the local non-profit.

Johnson said, "it doesn't take a lot of time. You don't have to do it every day. It's once, twice a month, you can do it once a week like me an Amirah do"

 Johnson has gotten a a lot out of being a Big Sister, and it's easy to see that her Little Sister Amirah absolutely adores her.

"She's smart, she's funny, she's fun, and i really like her", Amirah said with a big smile on her face.
