Below is an excerpt:
Marquetta, now 13 and an eighth-grader at Westside Academy II, and her "Big Sister," Valerie Vidal, a litigation attorney with Quarles & Brady, appear in one of the Milwaukee YouTube videos. The pair, matched now for five years, was recently named as the local organization's Match of the Year and is being nominated for the state honor.
"We have so much fun together," said Vidal, who recently assisted the A-student in skipping a grade this school year and also being accepted at one of the prominent high schools in Milwaukee Public Schools. "Marquetta's a great kid, with or without me as her big sister."
