When Samira discovered Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic would grant her one true wish, she wished to have a classroom right in her bedroom.
Samira, a 9-year old dealing with neuroblastoma, is very outgoing and talkative. She loves to play with her friends, and she especially likes to play school. When Samira discovered Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic would grant her one true wish, she wished to have a classroom right in her bedroom. This would provide her own special space when she is home battling her disease.
Samira was all smiles when she entered her new, bright purple room. She could not believe the size of the chalkboard on her wall. She loved sitting at her new desk, decorated with flowers, where she can draw and paint to her heart's desire. Never afraid to show off her work, she was very excited to have a new cork-board to proudly display new masterpieces. Transformed from an ordinary young girl's room to a stylish classroom with pink cubbies, Samira now has a room to truly embrace her love of learning and teaching.
Now Samira can play class right in her room with family and friends. She was sure to show her gratitude by writing "Thank-you!" on her chalkboard. Every day in her room will be a reminder of Samira's wish come true.
