Ava loves Tina Fey, and in February of 2012 her wish to meet her was granted with a trip of a lifetime. Ava flew to New York City where she spent a few days exploring the city. She went sight-seeing, ate all the amazing food and shopped, however her favorite part was meeting her idol Tina Fey. Tina met Ava on the set of her hit show 30 Rock. Tina showed Ava around the set, introduced her to other cast members and ate lunch with her. Tina also gave Ava some gifts including a signed copy of her book.
When Ava returned from her wish she sent an email to her Wish Granter saying: "I wanted to also thank you so much for everything that Make-A-Wish has given me. I cannot tell you how happy this trip has made me and what an impact Make-A-Wish has made on my life."
