Nik feels like he is special because he can find ways to be happy despite his hardships, and his upcoming wish trip to Hawaii is currently playing a huge part in maintaining this happiness and optimism.

Nik is a 14-year-old with a special personality, and believes in embracing life. After some thought, he decided that he wants to go to Hawaii with his family. Nik dreams of becoming a professional actor and singer, and he isn’t just expecting it to fall into his lap. Nik has been taking classes and auditioning for a number of plays and musicals. Singing and acting help Nik feel like he can overcome his difficulties with his musculoskeletal disorder. Nik is more confident when he is acting because he feels “just as big as everyone else.” By holding on to the hope of succeeding at the things he enjoys, Nik maintains a positive perspective about himself and his condition.

Nik can find ways to be happy despite his hardships, and his upcoming wish trip to Hawaii is currently playing a huge part in maintaining this happiness and optimism.

Nik can’t wait to explore the islands with his family, experience the laid back atmosphere and lifestyle, and enjoy a relaxing holiday among the palm trees and beaches.  For his family, their Hawaiian getaway will be a fun time to enjoy each other’s company away from the hardships of Nik’s condition.
