Joanna - 16 years on

Joanna’s dream was to meet the band Steps. 16 years on she is a budding photographer and fundraiser for Dreams.

Joanna’s dream all those years ago was to meet the band Steps. As a complete surprise, Dreams Come True arranged for Joanna to be taken to the ITV studios to meet the band on the set of SMTV live hosted by Ant and Dec.

She had no idea that Steps were appearing and was absolutely thrilled when she was taken to meet them in the green room.

Joanna was ill for two years and had to undergo intensive treatment, including chemotherapy. She lost her hair and looking back, Joanna admits that the illness knocked her confidence. It was only when she held a camera that her mum noticed she became a different person.

Her interest led to a two-year photography course and Joanna is now building a reputation as a very talented professional photographer.

Joanna couldn’t believe it when Dreams Come True called and gave her the opportunity to do her first celebrity photo shoot.

As she said, “You’ve made my dream come true all over again!”

 “My dream was an amazing day and gave me a real boost after going through some gruelling treatment”
