Knoxville — More than 160 children are waiting to be matched with mentors in Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee.

Sahara, 6, is in first grade.

He is the youngest of five brothers. Two of them already have 'bigs'.

Sahara has big plans for where he'll go with his mentor, most of which involve food.

"McDonald's, Chick-Fil-A, Taco Bell," he said.

The math whiz loves to count the toys in his Happy Meal.

"What's one plus one? Two. What's two plus two? Four. What's four plus four? Eight," said Sahara.

He wants to be a police officer when he grows up.

"They help people," he smiles.

Sahara is good at helping and likes to share with others.
