Meet the Winter Village All-Stars: Gessy's Story

Meet our Winter Village All Stars, young New Yorkers who have been honored by Bank of America Winter Village for giving back to their communities. Each All Star was nominated by an adult in their life and 10 finalists were chosen. Today we highlight one of our noteworthy young All Stars!

A 12-year old from the Bronx, Gessy Sierra, gives back to her neighborhood through her love of music--singing in GOAL’s chorus where she has performed for veterans, mentally handicapped and formerly homeless members of the community.
