Profile picture of STARboard member, Lauren Fitzgerald

Ren Fitzgerald, 14, from County Down in Northern Ireland, joins STARboard with hopes to bring new ideas and help plan events that will bring joy to other children battling life limiting illnesses. After being diagnosed with cancer in July 2018 Make-A-Wish granted their wish to meet Emma Watson – Ren’s greatest idol and role model. In December 2019, Ren and their family spent a weekend in London where they visited the Harry Potter Studios and later had afternoon tea with Emma.

With hopes of becoming a primary school teacher one day Ren loves to spend her time being creative. They know first-hand how wish children are feeling and how a wish can give them something to be really excited about and look forward to. As a member of STARboard they look forward to bringing new ideas to help other wish children have a wonderful experience.
