After knitting a beanie for herself, Lodi Middle School student Brianne Wild had an epiphany. With a shy demeanor and sparkling blue eyes, she talked about her endeavor of providing knitted caps to young cancer patients.

Enlisting the help of her mom Kathi Wild and family friend Nora Rowland, they began the crafty process of knitting hats. To date, they have 30 adorable hats ready to be delivered to the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Cancer Center of America.

"Believe in your dreams" is a phrase Brianne clings to personally. Knowing that she is making a difference by encouraging others to keep hope motivates her to have a servant's heart.

When she isn't volunteering her time helping others in various capacities, Brianne likes to play water polo, hang out with her friends and read.

Her long term goals overlap with helping others and giving hope. Brianne desires to major in robotic engineering in order to build robots and prosthetic limbs.
