Samantha's Wish

Samantha is a 17-year-old girl living with left side Acoustic Schwannoma. She loves the outdoors and wishes to someday have a career that will help the environment! She loves playing sports like soccer, watching movies and listening to music in her spare time. Samantha's wish, to go to the San Diego Zoo, was a perfect fit with her interest in the environment and love of the outdoors!  She was excited to have a behind-the-scenes experience with her favourite animals!

After her wish, Samantha wrote;

“I went on the wish trip of a lifetime to the lovely city of San Diego. I was lucky enough to visit the San Diego Zoo, Safari Park, Birch's Aquarium and Nurtured by Nature. My time at the Zoo was absolutely amazing, I got to see and experience so many different animals, some I didn’t even know existed. With the help of a really great tour guide, I learned many, many really cool things and interacted with a whole bunch of different species of animals. My favourite part was being super close to and feeding the giraffes. They are just stunning creatures! Thank you Make-A-Wish®!”
