My First Month at Kids Wish Network

It has been about one month since I have started working at Kids Wish Network.  When I graduated from college I never thought I would be working for a wish granting organization, but I have to say that I am enjoying my experience here.           

My official title is Wish Referral Specialist/Writer, and I have had the pleasure of getting many applications sent out and started, as well as writing a few press releases and stories about our wish kids.  I feel like I am contributing to something important every time I pick up the phone and dial a parent’s number.

It always amazes me when I hear the illnesses that some of these kids have: Leukemia, Duchene’s Muscular Dystrophy, Spina Bifida, heart problems, and so many more.  It makes me realize that if these kids can go through what they have to endure on a daily basis, my problems are basically non-existent.  

My goal upon graduating college was to get employed at a newspaper or magazine where I could gain experience and expand my personal portfolio, but I ended up here, at Kids Wish Network.  And it feels nice to say that I am contributing to a greater cause than the expansion of my portfolio!
