Taking one final peek in the mirror, Alex could not believe what she saw. Peering back from the glass was not a girl restricted by cystic fibrosis, but rather the pop star she always saw herself to be.
With the natural ability to perform and a love for entertaining others, a wish to become a pop star was Alex’s chance to experience what it would be like to have all attention on her.
Remaining true to her own style, Alex’s new look was completed with red lipstick and a 1950s inspired dress. With her makeover complete, Alex was ready for her time in the spotlight to begin.
Stepping on the set, a wave of calm came over her; this was exactly where she belonged. Beginning slowly at first, Alex moved effortlessly from one pose to the next, each paired with a smile. With every flash of the camera, confidence grew within Alex. This confidence would be Alex’s souvenir from her wish experience and would continue to give her strength long after her day as a pop star ended.
