Marcela Torres  BRONX, NY

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.

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.
