My name is Natalie Harrington. My passion for serving others has led me in my pursuit of a Human Development and Family Studies degree with a minor in psychology from the University of Houston. As an eager senior, I began my search for an internship position and through networking with UH alumni, I was connected with Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana. After obtaining this incredible opportunity, I was assigned to the fundraising and development department. Since my start, I have had the incredible opportunity to coordinate events, organize volunteer engagement, support fundraising efforts and most importantly grant wishes!! Make-A-Wish grants wishes to every eligible child battling a critical illness to inspire strength and hope to continue their fight. After graduating, I plan to continue to explore my commitment to the non-profit field to positively impact the lives of children and families in Houston.
