Name: Daniela Rios
Title: Wish Referral Specialist
Before joining Make-A-Wish Arizona: I was a full-time student at Arizona State University. I interned for a local non-profit organization, Live and Learn Arizona, and also served as a peer mentor and research assistant for ProMod, a program with Arizona State University. During my senior year of college, I also worked as a teller for U.S. Bank.
Education: Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Bachelor of Science in Family & Human Development from Arizona State University.
About me: I was born in Colombia but have lived in Arizona practically my entire life. I love to travel! Some places I have visited include Spain, Germany, Italy, France, and the Dominican Republic. In my free time, I enjoy trying new restaurants, going hiking, and spending time with friends and family.
My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Arizona: Helping make wishes come true! One of my favorite parts about my job is hearing the family’s excitement (and sometimes, tears of joy) when they find out their child is eligible for a wish.
My wish would be: To travel to as many countries as possible!
