It was recently announced Ms. Victoria Phillips and Mr. David Rengifo have been selected as the 2019 Big Brother & Big Sister of the Year. It is a thrill and honor to have Victoria and David represent the organization as the Big Brother and Big Sister of the Year. “Sama and I are lucky to have found each other. Our friendship has been mutually beneficial, and more emotionally impactful than I could have ever imagined. I am honored to be in her life, to help her see the abilities within herself, to listen, and to give her a bigger picture of the world.  In turn, she has helped me to learn and grow and to appreciate life's differences. I am forever grateful to have been given this opportunity,” states Victoria. David met Robiel when Robiel was 12 years old. With David’s help, Robiel was able to put his life back together. He is now a high school senior on track to graduate in May. Victoria and David’s application will be submitted to Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of Florida along with other Bigs of the Year applications submitted from the agencies in Florida. The State Association’s panel of judges selects one Big Brother and one Big Sister who will represent the State of Florida.
