Inaara Wishes to be a Model

Inaara is a 15-year-old who loves fashion and makeup. Unlike most teens her age, she has cancer. When Inaara found out she would be granted a wish, she knew exactly what she wanted to wish for. Inaara wished to be a model!

Inaara was offered the opportunity to be a part of the launch of the Macy’s Believe campaign. She and her family traveled to New York City. On her wish day, Inaara was whisked away to Macy's in a limo.She was greeted at the store with flowers and media. Inside Macy's, she met with stylist Mary Alice Stephenson. Inaara and MAry had lunch and chatted about the plan for the day. They went through the store and picked clothing, jewlery and shoes for Inaara to try on. 

Inaara's glam team made sure she was picture perfect. Styling her hair and doing her makeup, they created the perfect look that was uniquely Inaara. She was presented at the launch ceremonies and she spent some time posing and modeling her outfit. Inaara finished her day with more flowers and a limo drive back to her hotel. Throughout the experience, Inaara was made to feel like a superstar.

Inaara summarizes her experience as "The best day ever!" Inaara’s mother explains, "I feel so proud of seeing her live her dream. I was speechless. She was a superstar that day." Inaara’s mother feels that Inaara’s life has changed as she has become more confident and has more energy to face the world. "Thank you so much. I can see the change … she shines! You have changed her life".
