Mitchell's Wish a Natural

Mitchell Corsi

“ It was the best week of my entire life. ”


- Wish kid Mitchell

Mitchell’s wish was to head west — specifically to Yellowstone National Park. And that wish changed the direction of his life.

Through Make-A-Wish Northeast New York, Mitchell visited the majestic national park that straddles Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

“It was the best week of my entire life,’’ Mitchell said. “It was all under the biggest, clearest sky I had ever seen. It was really amazing, and I got to share it with my family.”

The youth, who plans to study environmental engineering, would return to the natural treasure.

“I was so inspired by Yellowstone, when I got back I immediately went online and applied for a job for teenagers,” he said. “To my surprise, they offered me a job … in the Youth Conservation Corps.”

Thanks to a referral to Make-A-Wish Northeast New York, Mitchell’s heartfelt wish was granted. Do you know of a potentially eligible child who would benefit from a life-changing wish? Head to md.wish.org to review our referral guidance sheets, and refer a potential wish kid today.
