Seventeen-year-old Angeline is a happy, energetic girl whose dream was to go to Walt Disney World Resort with her sisters. While she had visited the magical destination before, her younger sister had not. When it came time to decide on a wish, Angeline wished to experience a trip of a lifetime with her sisters, thinking of their beautiful friendship and how much they mean to her.
Make-A-Wish granted Angeline’s wish just in time for Halloween – her favorite holiday celebration! Angeline also reports that not only did she get tickets to the Disney theme parks, she also was able to visit Universal Studios, and SeaWorld. Angeline says, “Make-A-Wish means so much to me. I had so much fun on the trip and chose to take my older sister, and younger sister, so we could get away for a bit of time for a girls-only vacation.” Angeline talks about meeting her favorite mouse… Mickey, as well as Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and the Disney Princesses. However, she insists that of all the characters she spoke with, she still considers Mickey Mouse her absolute favorite.
“I didn’t know what Make-A-Wish was all about when the helper at the hospital mentioned it to me,” Angeline says and goes on to say that having her wish granted meant the world to her and her family. “It was awesome, and I would love to go back to Disney again with my family in the next few years.”
Angeline is now inspired and excited to become involved with the very organization that helped make her dream come true. “I can’t wait to be old enough to volunteer for Make-A-Wish and help other children smile,” she says. “A wish is so important for children like me, who are going through a lot of tough stuff.”
