Match of the Month: Dayshuwun and Alex

Posted: February 16, 2017

Dayshuwun and Alex have connected from day one. At their match introduction, Dayshuwun was a little shy but as soon as this match got going, Dayshuwun showed up with his awesome outgoing personality and hit the ground running. Alex really caters their activities around his interests and his energy. From Nuggets games, to the annual ski trip, STEM day and learning how to cook, this match does not shy away from an adventure. The best part about this pair is they are both willing to go outside of their comfort zone and try something new. They always have fun together and Dayshuwun lights up when he spends time with Alex. When I asked him what his favorite thing about Alex was he said, "EVERYTHING!"

When Alex and Dayshuwun went to the Nuggets game, (courtesy of some awesome donors!), Dayshuwun got to meet the mascot and even got on the jumbo-tron.

Dayshuwun said that one day he wants to be President of the United States and there is no doubt he can reach whatever he sets his mind to. Alex is encouraging of this, and of all of Dayshuwun’s goals and endeavors. Alex and Dayshuwun have only been matched for 5 months but they have already forged a strong bond. Whether they are just sharing a meal together and talking or trying something new at Team Big activities, the sky is the limit for this match and what they can achieve.
