Can a Maronite Catholic be my confirmation sponsor?

I need to pick my conformation sponsor soon and I want to ask one of my old teachers who is a family friend. She goes to a libanese church called St. Joesph Maronite Church. My question is does she qualify to be my sponsor?

The following link should answer your question. If you have any further questions, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
