My name is Gloria Padilla and I'm from Salinas, CA. I'm a junior at Salinas High School with a goal to study criminal science as a future career. Recently, I received an invitation to represent Salinas High at the National Youth Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C. I would be honored to represent my school at this conference, but I lack the financial means to pay for tavel and tuition expenses. In order to participate at this conference, I need to raise $1,800. I'm looking for your help by donating any amount which will help me reach my goal. I'm excited to go and learn a variety of things that I need to know for my future career. I would be grateful for any help you can volunteer. Thank you for yout thoughts and consideration.
