My wish to go to the Atlantis Resort was granted in 2011.

Before going on my wish I thought I would never be able to go on a vacation again but the wish really showed me that anything is possible.

While on my wish, we had a suite all to ourselves at the Atlantis Hotel in the Bahamas. I was also able to swim with dolphins and pet a sea lion, how cool is that?! I had always dreamed of visiting ever since I was a kid and I can honestly say my wish was a dream fulfilled. It was a trip I'll never forget!

I recently graduated high school and look forward to my next adventure. As an alumni committee member, I've volunteered at many events including covering an information table at the New City Street Fair in 2013 and 2014. I also have volunteered at the last two Annual Wish Ball events as a greeter and assisted with the Macy's Believe campaign by dropping letters to Santa. With my volunteer involvement, I want to help other wish kids feel connected to Make-A-Wish post-wish and hopefully they too can be inspired to give back.

The gift of a wish replenished all of our souls, it also allowed us some much needed together family time without the overwhelming daily routines and schedules. ”
