Tangari took some time to decide on her Wish, but when she did, it all made sense: she wished to have a MacBook laptop computer!
17-year-old Tangari (pronounced “tan-ger-AY”) or Tangi for short, from Peekskill is a hard-working over-achiever! She runs track, participates in all kinds of clubs, and is busy preparing herself for college. She also likes to play Boggle, and her favorite restaurant is Red Lobster. Tangeri took some time to decide on her Wish, but when she did, it all made sense: she wished to have a MacBook laptop computer!
In true Wish-magic style, Make-A-Wish®
pulled out all the stops for this wonderful young lady giving her not just a laptop but a full Wish experience. Tangeri’s Wish Day was planned as a huge surprise! Earlier that day, her aunt asked her to come home early from track practice to “babysit” her four-year-old cousin, Tiara. Little did she know what was in store for her …
Wish Granters arrived to Tangeri’s house early and set up her laptop along with an all-in-one printer, a beautiful new desk and chair, and the item every teenager girl wants – a brand new, shiny red iPod Nano! And her sparkling green laptop came with a 19-inch screen and maxed-out memory – to hold all her songs and videos! They decorated the house with balloons and streamers and waited patiently for her to come home.
As Tangeri opened the front door, the Wish Granters – led by little Tiara – leaped out from behind the couch and yelled, “SURPRISE!” She was shocked! Her beautiful new computer sat waiting for her. She told us that just that day she was talking to her teacher about how much she needed it! She cried with joy, saying, “I can’t believe I have my own computer!” She said it was like a dream come true!
