Today's featured sister in Georgia Turner! Georgia had dedicated so much of her time and effort to Miracle. Get to know Georgia and see why she loves Miracle below!
What is your major and year in school? I am a 4th year Psychology major with an English minor. I plan to go to Law School
What is your favorite restaurant in Athens? I love Trappeze!
What is your favorite movie? Clueless! But basically any 90s movie
What is your position in Miracle? I am a Hospital Relations Co-Chair
What do you do as Hospital Relations Co-Chair? I get the privileged of going to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta almost every week to interact with hospital staff, patients and patients families. When we go, we like to just have fun with the kids and take their mind off of treatment and celebrate the hospital staff for working so hard and with such joy for the kids!
Why did you chose to get involved with Miracle? At the first UGA Miracle event I went to, one of our Miracle children spoke about his story at CHOA and how the hospital helped him overcome huge health barriers to get him walking and playing sports again. The support and enthusiasm from the UGA Miracle students was incredible - you could tell they really loved on these families and hospital so well and were so passionate about this organization. I was hooked during my first month of college and am so grateful UGA has given me such an incredible organization to be part of all four years of college.
What are you most excited for this year with Miracle? I am so excited to start hospital visits! It's so rewarding to see what all of the money we work so hard to raise goes towards. Also, I'm excited to see my committee interact with the children and love on them and their families - it's going to be amazing!
