For 15-year-old Alysa, the chance to meet superstar Justin Bieber was like hitting the jackpot. She truly relates to his music and lyrics, especially when she is going through a hard time in her battle with a congenital cardiac condition.
Alysa excitedly started her journey to California with a limo ride to the airport with her family. The special treatment continued with a surprise in her hotel room – a variety of Justin’s favorite snacks, including sour watermelon candies and cookies.
The next day she was treated to professional hair and makeup styling, all to prepare her for meeting her idol. Alysa was thrilled when she first saw Justin – she could hardly believe her eyes. She listened to note after note as he serenaded the group with some of his hits (and her favorites). Justin spoke about always staying positive, something that Alysa will never forget. During one-on-one time, Justin gave her a bag filled with special souvenirs. He even autographed a few items for her.
As if meeting Justin wasn’t enough, Alysa was treated to an exciting day at Universal Studios. She and her family explored the theme park, going on the rides and just enjoying their time together away from everyday life. Alysa’s wish was a surreal experience that she will continue to hold dear in her heart.
