On Thursday, April 4, 2024, Amplify Her® Foundation, a private grantmaking foundation, hosted a unique college exploration day at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, in coordination with Foundation grantee partners Bella Abzug Leadership Institute, Seeds of Fortune and Student Leadership Network. They were also joined by the Girls Scouts of Greater New York. 20 girls from these organizations, including students from the Young Women’s Leadership School of the Bronx, a single-sex public school, explored the academic and professional opportunities afforded by a United States service academy. The event was the first in the Foundation’s “If She Can Make it Here” Leadership Series.

Amplify Her Foundation partners with organizations that help women and girls from underserved communities to become transformative changemakers. With the grantee partners’ focus on supporting girls on a path to leadership and West Point’s long history of producing exceptional leaders, the day was specifically tailored to address the questions and goals of girls exploring higher education and considering a career in public service.

The students, grades 9-11, toured the institution’s state-of-the-art facilities, including using a flight simulator, attended classes taught by distinguished women faculty members alongside cadets and gained insight into the rigorous academic programs and leadership training available at West Point.

“The U.S. Military, and specifically the U.S. Service…

Today’s total solar eclipse is a rare celestial event, with the moon passing between the sun and the earth.

For many, this phenomenon holds spiritual significance and scientific intrigue, while others view it simply as a fascinating novelty.

Here is what some New Yorkers had to say about today’s eclipse:

Veronica Gonzalez shared, “My anticipation for today’s eclipse is to hope for everyone’s safety and to protect yourself spiritually during that time.”

Larissa Castillo expressed, “I’ve heard that many changes come into effect along with an eclipse. I’m just expecting a vibrant, positive change.”

Zenobia Bonilla reflected, “I would like to think that this is a special time to connect with the Universe in a way that science and faith unite us all. Also, just something great to witness as well.”

James Washington Ward remarked, “Can’t we just enjoy nature for nature, and God’s work for his work? If you’re living right, whatever happens doesn’t matter. And just enjoy the eclipse.”

Elianni Tejada dismissed the hype, stating, “I am not anticipating the eclipse. It’s just like…

Street Renaming Petition To Honor Mario D’Agostino
The Bronx Daily | Bronx.com

Mario D’Agostino, who passed away June 14, 2020, was a true leader in his community in the Bronx and left his mark on the neighborhood and everyone, who had the pleasure of knowing him. 

Mario was an honorable man, who changed people’s lives with his beautiful mind, strong work ethic, positive outlook on life and investing in his favorite part of New York City, the Bronx.

Editorial

You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.

As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.

Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.

It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.

You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.

As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.

I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.

As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…
