Hannah Finn

Andover, Massachusetts

Hannah Finn, 16, of Andover, Mass., a junior at Andover High School, founded “The One Wish Project,” which grants children in homeless shelters a special birthday celebration they may otherwise not be able to enjoy. The organization’s beginnings involved using her own money to fund baking cakes and giving gifts to children; since then, she has partnered with the Lazarus House and La Casa Nueva Vida, and now provides birthday celebrations to about 50 children each year.
