At age 17, Janvi Shahi is our youngest hero to date. Through her paintings, Janvi has helped raise $98,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Janvi was diagnosed with lukemia when she was very young. At age 4, she was granted her wish to go to Disney World. After a relapse at age 5, she asked her mother if she could have another wish. But her mom challenged her with “let’s find a way we can help other kids get their wishes instead.”
Janvi started painting for the Wish Kid Art program. In the beginning, her first paintings sold for around $40. Last year, one went for $14,000. Her dream is to raise $100,000 by the end of next year, a goal we are sure she will achieve very soon!
What’s next for Janvi? She’s applying to college in hopes of studying graphic design.
