Make-A-Wish Volunteer Hilda Perez

This year marks Hilda's 5th year of volunteering with Make-A-Wish. As Hilda explains, "Make-A-Wish has helped me feel useful, like I have a bigger purpose in life, like I'm making a difference."

Her favorite part of wish granting is seeing a child's face when they find out that their wish is going to come true. Hilda receives joy in her life through bringing joy to others.

Many of Hilda's favorite experiences with Make-A-Wish have revolved around Disney. When she was about 4 years-old, Hilda's cousin had a wish granted by Make-A-Wish to go to Disney World. Hilda's cousin would not stop talking about how much fun she had. Then, after becoming a volunteer, Hilda's first and favorite wish was sending a girl to meet Tinker Bell. By the time Hilda was going over paperwork with the child's parents, the little girl had already opened all her presents and was dancing around in her Tinker Bell dress. Just like her cousin, if Hilda had one wish as a child, it would be to go to Walt Disney World® Resort.

Hilda is involved in her community and is passionate about teaching Sunday school. She loves spending time with children, family, and friends. She also enjoys creating art, eating out, and shopping.
