"I am so excited to have the opportunity to open up PenPalsForLife to San Diego because of how impactful I know this program is for so many members of our community. Not only is this going to make a huge difference in the lives of senior citizens, but it is also going to mutually benefit everyone involved. Quarantine has been difficult for all of us, but this trying time has reminded me how important it is that we think of others who might be struggling. I am so lucky to have my grandparents live nearby, and because of this I am very close with my grandparents and see them often. Unfortunately, I know many senior citizens do not have this same opportunity, making PenPalsForLife all the more important. I am truly beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to be involved with such an incredible program and cannot wait to begin making connections and relationships with our senior citizens."
