Aniya is an adventurous 11-year-old girl from Harvey, LA who likes playing football with her friends and spending time outside. Her wish to go to Disney World to see the princesses was granted this past summer in August of 2017! Aniya suffers from hearing loss combined with health factors that required a kidney transplant when she was 10-years-old. Having a kidney transplant at such a young age can be scary for many families, but Aniya did not let that stop her from having a great time with her family on the trip.
Aniya wished to go to Disney because she imagined riding all the rides and seeing the princesses; things that she had the chance to experience allowing her to experience just being a kid. Her time spent on the wish reflected Aniya’s unique nature, learning how to ride a horse—how’s that for being a part-time princess and a cowgirl! Ultimately, Aniya’s wish gave her and her family the opportunity to be together as a family and just enjoy life. Aniya’s Disney wish was a life-changing experience, and she was all smiles!
