My name is Marggines (Mar.G.Nes), this is my third year in College Unbound. I came across Writing For Change through my college adviser and facilitator Adam. A little bit about my self is that I am absolutely in love with music, it’s been my passion since I was a toddler. I enjoy producing & engineering instrumentals as well as singing and performing. Aside from music I also take pleasure in film and graphic design. I am part of a music group that goes by the name of Music One. We make all original music, and thanks to our Mentor/Manager we get the opportunities to showcase our songs all throughout the country and in front of very amazing individuals.
If you’d like to take a listen to some of our music and my instrumentals please feel free:

For a while now, one of the many issues that I feel is most important to me as a person, are the immigration laws that we carry-out here in the United States. Though it is a very general topic it affects such a big popularity in our country. Most of which I can relate with, because I am an immigrant. I was born in Dominican Republic and came to the U.S. when I was 7 years old. I’ve seen things and have gone through things that no 7 year old should have to see or go through. And though I’m not much of a politician I am willing to use my “Gifts” (For lack of a better term) to make a difference and change what is injustice about the immigration system.
I am currently resided in Providence, Rhode Island. I live with my parents and my younger sister. I am looking forward to working in what I love and eventually make enough income to not only support myself but my family here in the U.S. and in Dominican Republic.
An organization that admire, aside from the ones I am already involved in… I don’t know many. So I wouldn’t want to randomly pick an organization. I’ve heard of a lot of great people doing really great things, and though I may not get involved in those projects, just the fact that they’re taking an initiative to make a difference is admirable.
