I Am Make-A-Wish: Julia

When granting wishes makes your own dreams come true.

For me, what began as a venture for volunteer experience turned into a depth of love for an organization and the people it serves. I’ve worked as a Wish Granter and Ambassador for Make-A-Wish® Utah for almost five years. In that time, I’ve gained a great love for the wish kids and their families, as well as each of their unique journeys. The moment I witnessed first-hand the magic within the wish process, I fell in love. A wish brings hope, strength, and joy to children who need it – and there is great discernment in ending a day knowing you have contributed to a dream. Being a part of the magic has allowed me to feel a part of something bigger and more significant than myself. My involvement with Make-A-Wish Utah and in the community has grown my heart exponentially. Who knew Make-A-Wish would make my dreams come true, too? I have certainly received more than I have given. I was raised to believe I can change this world, and my goal is to help others realize they are capable of doing the same.
