Thank you to all of you who have helped me achieve this dream! I’m so happy that I got the chance to achieve and touch so many people through this page. I don't even know how to thank all of you who supported me. I will be a great honor to be in Washington D.C. representing all of you. Once again i would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am glad I never gave up on my dream.

Hello! I am Marcela Pinos and I am a junior at Bronx High School for Medical Science. I need to raise at least $2,500 in order to go to Washington D.C. to attend the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Conference. I was chosen to participate in this marvelous event but sadly because of economic hardships I find it difficult to get the money needed. I maintain a 90.73 average and I'm involved in various honor activities as well as awards. I have won a full scholarship to a wonderful program called ActionQuest and also assisted a program called the Summer Neuroscience Program this past summer as well as the NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell Ceremony. I have recently been awarded with an Honor Roll by the National Honor Society. I am also a proud member of the National Society for High School Scholars. I really wish to attend this event and this is why I am asking for your support. Lastly I would like to say that if you know anyone who can help please tell them of this page.

As a fellow Bronxite and graduate of St. Nicholas of Tolentine grammer school and Mt. St. Michael Academy I learned to always explore the possibilities and follow my dreams...even though the obstacles were great. But I never gave up. Nothing significant has ever been achieved by awaiting for change. So now, go catch the wind at your back and fly into the world of possibility. One day you will land and find yourself in an amazing place...all I ask is that you too try and help someone else achieve their dream when you are in a position to.

Marcela, I grew up in the Bronx, the most wonderful place in the world! I don't have much; like your mother, I work in a supermarket, but I wish you all the best & want you to succeed. Some very smart & famous people came from our borough-I hope to read about you one day. Good Luck!

Marcela, my father is from the South Bronx and has worked really hard to earn an MBA and have a great career. He also made sure we got a top notch education. For Christmas, I want to pay it forward with this donation to you in his honor. Continue to strive and focus on your self-development. I'm sure you will reach your goal. Your story is inspiring!
