Wish Wednesday: Sierra Helping Other Wish Kids Feel Like Superstars

Sierra now works as a wish clerk in our Pittsburgh office
My relationship with Make-A-Wish® started long ago when I was just a small first-grader, and my school district raised money for this incredible foundation. While my biggest worry was learning how to ride a bike without training wheels, some wish kids were facing much larger personal and medical challenges. As the years went by, I began to understand the mission of Make-A-Wish and the impact that a wish can have on a child's life. But I never expected that I would be on the receiving end of a wish.
