Little Brother Daniel had high hopes when he learned he would get a new Big Brother. He had been a Little Brother before, but the match didn’t work out like he had hoped. Luckily for Daniel, Scott was everything he could have wanted in a Big Brother. “I was a little worried about us not hitting it off, but now it’s like we’re the same person,” Big Brother Scott said. “We love to goof off and challenge each other.” When Daniel, 11, and Scott aren’t recreating YouTube experiments, they can be found building with Legos, going to museums, the aquarium or an Astros game. Daniel says he is thankful his mom enrolled him in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. He enjoys spending time with his Big Brother and through Scott’s support, has found a real joy in challenging himself.
