Georgia Tech esteemed 2014 alumna, Abbey Wysocki fulfills 70 to 80 wishes a year for critically ill children in her role with Make-A-Wish Georgia. After her brother’s acute lymphoblastic leukemia diagnosis, Wysocki was inspired to join the Make-A-Wish team as an intern throughout college. She worked as a “Wish Coordinator”, granting wishes to children ages 2-and-a-half to 18 years old who suffer from critical illness. Wysocki says that her job was emotionally and professionally fulfilling because “it’s a great feeling to make their wishes come true and make a difference in their lives…every wish is different and always presents a new challenge. That is the exciting part of the job.”
