My Reasons Why - Dalal Badran

Dalal and Wish Kid
Meet the faces behind the mission. We sat down with the individuals behind the scenes to find out why they chose to dedicate their time and talent to granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Today's spotlight focuses on Volunteer Manager, Dalal Badran.

Q: Why did you decide to join the mission of Make-A-Wish? 

A: I decided to work for Make-A-Wish because it’s an organization I’ve volunteered with for over nine years and an organization whose mission I’m truly passionate about. I was also at a point in my life and career where I was ready for a change, but not just any change. I wanted to do something that was fulfilling and really made a difference and impact in the lives of others. Something I could be extremely proud of.

Q: What is the most rewarding experience you've had with Make-A-Wish? 

A: The most rewarding experience I’ve had with Make-A-Wish has been working with the incredible Wish Kids and their families over the years. Being able to see firsthand the impact a wish has is humbling and rewarding. For that period of time, a Wish Kid can be a kid and not be defined by the disease or illness he or she has. To see the excitement and hope a wish gives them is priceless.

Q: What has been your favorite part in working with Make-A-Wish?

A: My favorite part of working for Make-A-Wish is being able to take my passion for the organization to the next level. I get to work with our incredible Wish Granters, who are really the heart of this organization. I also have the privilege of working with more Wish Kids and families than I did as a Wish Granter. Speaking with Wish Parents and learning more about these Wish Kids is affirmation to me that I’m where I belong.
