Being a Young Agent you have the opportunity to be involved in many things, including working on projects. Our project this year is Make-A-Wish America. You can give in-kind donations, participate in walks, volunteer at their upcoming events or be a Wish Granter. Last year I had the pleasure of being a Wish Granter for a three year old non-speaking little girl. I was there to find out what her wish was, but while I was there I got so much more. Watching her not be able to speak, walk or sit up by herself but yet she was so full of happiness gave me a new appreciation on life. Her smile was contagious. This little girl will never be able to live a normal life, but yet she has more life in her than so many healthy people.
