MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A 10-year-old girl, who wants to be a police officer when she grows up, is looking for a Big Sister.

WMC Action News 5 is teaming up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mid-South to provide mentors for dozens of local kids who just need a little guidance to reach their full potential.

Talia Jones will one day be a crime fighter.

"Make people do the right thing," Jones said. "When someone needs me, I can go."

Jones, who is a 5th grader at Charjean Elementary School, is looking for a Big Sister who will hang out and enjoy some of her favorite hobbies: bowling, reading, and eating nachos.

She would love it if her Big Sister was in law enforcement; she's looking for a confidante who can show her the ropes.

"I want to tell them things that go on at school and home," Jones said.
