New suit for Cody who is enjoying his career at Merrill Lynch

Posted Aug 10, 2017
Cody is wishing for this because he needs a suit for his career at Merrill Lynch and life as a financial adviser. He was given the opportunity to start a career right after graduating college and officially aging out of foster care, which he knows is one of the best opportunities that he can have and take advantage of and he does not want to lose this opportunity because he does not have enough suits for the work week. In Cody's own words: "If I were to have my wish granted than that would mean that I would be given the opportunity to be successful in my new career. I would be given the opportunity to gain knowledge in a field that many foster youth don't have exposure to or knowledge of, and that I can bring back to my community and create opportunity with. I would be given the opportunity to become financially successful so that I can live comfortably and give back to my community."
