Ryan wished to meet Micky Arison

“ Ryan gained meaningful business advice from Micky Arison ”

Ryan gained insightful business advice from Micky Arison, owner of the Carnival Cruise Corporation and the Miami Heat basketball team.

Ryan is an adventurous teen who loves motocross, hip-hop music, and has always had an interest in business. He is living with Lymphoma, but he does not let that keep him from dreaming big! Ryan thought that his wish would be a great opportunity to talk to someone successful in the business world. He wished to meet with Micky Arison, owner of the Carnival Cruise Corporation and the Miami Heat NBA basketball team.

Ryan’s wish began with a limousine ride to the airport where he felt like a true VIP. The plane touched down in Miami and Ryan could not have been more excited! His family rested up for the eventful day ahead of them. Ryan was surprised with a tour of the Miami Heat locker room, and even got to see some of his favorite player’s jerseys! His wish day continued with some special one-on-one time with Micky. Ryan was able to talk to him and ask him for business advice. Ryan was pleased to learn how down to earth and fun Micky is. He thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with him. Ryan’s trip concluded by exploring the Florida coastline and spending some well-deserved relaxation time at the beach!

Ryan certainly made memories that will last a lifetime. He will never forget the valuable advice he acquired from Micky.
