Congratulation to the November 2013 Volunteer of the Month, Artemis Bayandor.
Artemis has been part of the Make-A-Wish® Arizona family since January and has already proven she is dedicated to our wish kids as well as raising money to grant more wishes.
Artemis has joined and/or assisted with a whopping 21 wishes and also been on the planning committee and volunteered at both the March Make-A-Wish Arizona Walk for Wishes and the 10th Annual Make-A-Wish Arizona Walk for Wishes, as well as our 2013 Wish Ball event.
“Since I love kids, I did fundraising for Make-A-Wish Arizona and always wanted to be part of the organization,” Artemis said. “It has been a dream come true and I have had the opportunity to interact with some real-life wish kid superstars.”
When asked her one, true wish, Artemis says it would be to meet the late Miss Audrey Hepburn. She admires Miss Hepburn's commitment to children, her calm poise and her grace in every situation.
Though Artemis has been a part of more than 20 wishes, she describes Jayden’s wish to go to Disneyland® as her favorite. “His wish was granted and he talked about his experience for months afterwards. His experience really proved to me the power of a wish.”
