About WISH

Founded in 2021, WISH strives to create a community where we can actively promote an understanding and awareness for children with disabilities. 

Many children that face disabilities often also encounter academic hurdles, and other challenges that a non-disabled would not face. We aspire to shed light on these challenges.

 

The objective of WISH would be to not only promote an understanding but also to serve as a gateway leading into academic knowledge and research behind the clinical practices of equipment and devices that can assist individuals with disabilities.

About the Founder

Grace Noh

Hello! My name is Grace, the founder of WISH. I am from Seoul, South Korea, but I attend a small boarding school named The Frederick Gunn School in Washington, Connecticut. 

The reason why I created WISH was because of my family background. Growing up with a disabled family member and witnessing the struggles, I have grown a passion and mission to help those who face hardships and limitations due to their disability. 

Through WISH, I hope to instill hope in functional needs children. Additionally, I want to create a community that connects disabled and non-disabled students to feel integrated and safe.
