Sixteen year old Jayrah from Granite Falls suffers from a degenerative neuro-muscular disorder called Friedreich’s Ataxia, but that doesn’t stop her from being quite the fashionista. She thoroughly enjoys keeping up with the latest fashion trends and beauty products.

Make-A-Wish Washington was recently able to grant Jayrah her wish to be a fashion model. With help from the Gary Manuel Salon, Nordstrom and the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle, Jayrah was given a VIP model experience that made her feel extra special and very pampered. She was dazzling in a bright coral red carpet strapless dress, and equally stylish in denim cut-offs and Converse high-tops. Jayrah’s beautiful smile shone even more brightly than the bling on her gown. What a wonderful day.
