Ryan Sievert & Mike

Hi, everyone. My name is Ryan, and this is my Little Brother Mike. I always knew about BBBS, and I lived by the old office so I passed it almost every day. After giving it some thought, Mike and I were matched in 2016. I have had many positive male role models in my life and have experienced firsthand the benefits of mentors. I thought the best way to pay them back was to “pay it forward” by becoming a mentor. What I did not expect is for Mike to teach me so much, too. It has been really fun to learn from him!

Mike and I are very active together. Playing basketball, throwing a football, hitting baseballs, going to trampoline parks, bowling, and kayaking are some of the activities we enjoy doing together. Of course, we make sure to grab a bite to eat, too. We have had some pretty memorable moments with one another. When I first met Mike, he was looking forward to his golden birthday. Fast forward 6 years and we got to celebrate it this October! Also, I will never forget our epic games of one-on-one basketball at Preble Park.

As far as what our future holds? We definitely want to go to a Bucks and a Brewers game.
