Have you ever hoped for a friend that understands you and will always be there?
That is the kind of friendship Kylie and June have with each other. After meeting at a Fostering Great Ideas’ event, Kylie and June hit it off. They joked with each other and bonded over shared hardships. They even started college together.
In that first year on the campus of Greenville Tech, Kylie and June’s friendship grew.
They began to hang out with one another more and more outside of the Aspire program they were both a part of. They would visit each other on campus and plan adventures together. Hope Coudayre, their life coach with Aspire, shares, “Being college friends, they don’t have a whole lot of money to do things, but they have a whole lot of friendship to spread around.”
Whether it is midterms or life’s challenges, Kylie and June know they have a friend by their side. As Kylie and June work hard to transition into adulthood, they have found something that will last beyond the college years. They have each other.
