Tell us a little about yourselfI am a third-year baccalaureate nursing student with an interest in pediatric acute care and I am currently a patient care assistant at an adult cancer hospital. This pandemic is hard on me because of the constant fear of infection and it is difficult to see patients go through medical treatments with limited support due to the visitor restrictions.
Tell us about your #MakeWaves projectI am President of A Moment of Magic at Ohio State University. We provide character visits to medically vulnerable children. As a result of this pandemic, our chapter is struggling to find the finances to continue providing magic to medically vulnerable children and their families.
During this pandemic, our organization has been offering character hotline calls, live programming on Facebook with characters or individuals leading activities, and community parades where characters wave to children in neighborhoods from their cars.
Who inspired you?Seeing the awe in children's faces after meeting their favorite princess or superhero makes me smile. I am overjoyed that can continue making magic during this difficult time and beyond.
