In a world where life is often described as fleeting and unpredictable, there are moments that remind us of the power of seizing every opportunity and embracing the joys that come our way.
For one extraordinary 13-year-old girl in Sabah, her journey may be shorter than most, but the hearts of Malaysians have come together to help fulfill her dreams before time runs out.

The Children's Wish Society of Malaysia (CWS Malaysia) took to their Facebook account to share a heartwarming photoshoot they organized for Jessica Magdeline, a talented aspiring model battling end-stage renal failure.
With pride and admiration, they wrote, "Meet Jessica Magdeline, Sabah's very own 'Sumandak' from Tamparuli, Tuaran, who radiates confidence as she takes center stage in front of the camera."
Despite the challenges she faces, Jessica's spirit shines brightly. CWS Malaysia, along with Talent Shop Sabah, came together to make her dream of becoming a model come true. Jessica's face lit up as the cameras clicked non-stop, capturing her sheer joy and undeniable talent.
Being the youngest in her family, raised by a single father, Jessica's dreams have always been her guiding light. However, her circumstances have made the possibility of receiving a life-saving renal transplant slim.
In order to ensure that at least one of her dreams comes to life, CWS Malaysia took Jessica and her sister on a special shopping spree to find the perfect attire for her photoshoot. The love and care poured into making this experience unforgettable is truly heartwarming.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to grant Jessica's wish. CWS Malaysia remains dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of ailing children across the nation, particularly in Sabah and Sarawak," shared Teoh Teik Hoong, the President of CWS Malaysia.
The photoshoot was a day filled with smiles, as volunteers Anita and Datuk Susan Chang, along with Nurse Sister Arlene, joined Jessica in capturing precious memories together.
