A powerful interview with Gena McDonald, founder of Developing Butterflies Big Sister Program.
Gena McDonald, founder of Developing Butterflies Big Sister Program, established April 6, 2016 born in Dayton and a graduate of Dayton Public Schools, is a mother of two (a son and a daughter), holds a Bachelor degree in Applied Behavioral Science and is very passionate about helping young ladies or "little sisters" be confident in who they are to overcome their obstacles. She didn’t have a bad life, but growing up with three parents on drugs and with the three main women in her life victims of domestic violence, she was already considered a statistic to repeat her environment.
Gena wasn’t involved in any mentoring or big sister program but realized that if she had a mentor or big sister, she could have made some better choices sooner-than-later, which is how Developing Butterflies came about; giving back what she didn’t have! She wanted to provide a program where little sisters could come be themselves and build strong, lasting relationships, while receiving support and guidance.
