Ashwani's wish to meet Denzel Washington

Ashwani's wish to meet Denzel Washington

“ Ashwani's wish gave him the confidence to start planning for the future again. ”

    • I wish to meet Denzel Washington

When Ashwani was 13 years old, he was diagnosed with cancer. He felt knocked down, and he questioned what he would be able to do with his life. As his hope faded, he learned that Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic would be granting his wish to meet Denzel Washington. The wish made Ashwani feel like anything was possible, giving him enough confidence to start planning for the future again. 

Today, Ashwani is a happy, healthy young man, whose greatest passion is giving back to his community. He not only volunteers as a wish granter and wish ambassador with Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, but he is also running for office as a candidate for Montgomery County Council At-Large. He says that his wish gave him the courage to pursue his biggest dreams.
