Deanna's Mattel Youth Ambassador Project

Having lived in a household of busy parents' schedules, independence was a skill that I learned to appreciate greatly growing up. This has given me the strength to be a strong minded individual to cope with various situations. Having the opportunity to be involved with the UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital, I've realized many of the children are still heavily reliant on their parents and aren't fortunate enough to be with them at certain times depending on the severity of their conditions. Although unknowingly, these children are beginning to grow and become independent individuals, too. Reinforcing the benefits of individuality creates strong hope and will for them.

Hi, I am Deanna Chin and I am a youth ambassador for UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital. I've always been fortunate enough to work with children whether it was in-person or virtually. The fulfillment of seeing the children's huge smiles from the fun and positive environment created while learning, was my motivation to continue helping others. My passion is to study medicine and help those in need. I believe emotional support for these children is the ultimate foundation of providing both hope and motivation for the improvement of their own health and well-being. I have the ability to uplift their spirits when necessary- and you can too! My dedication towards this opportunity is to allow the pediatric patients and their families feel loved and supported especially through these difficult times.

My goal is to raise $1,500 to help support the patients at Mattel Children's Hospital. These funds will directly support the Hospital and give the children an opportunity to be involved in activities and services such as Birthday Celebrations, Holiday Festivities, Art & Activity Kits, and more, providing comfort to these children and reducing the feeling of being alone.
