Waiting for a Mentor: Girl wants to learn to bake

Suzanne is a soon-to-be 6-year-old from the Baxter/Nisswa area that is waiting for a Kinship mentor. Her sister and brother have Kinship mentors and she says she would also like to have a special friend.

She enjoys many of the things little girls enjoy doing like arts, crafts, singing, dancing, painting, and dolls just to list a few. Suzanne would love to have someone teach her to bake.

She can be a bit on the shy side until she gets to know you. Once comfortable she can teach you a lot about fashion as she loves putting her clothes together and dressing really cute. Her mom says "Suzanne is a fashion diva."

As a new school year is about to get underway wouldn't it be fun to have a mentee read you a story as she learns her way through the pages of books.
