Bronx student heads to Washington D.C. for leadership conference

Although he's only in middle school, Zachary Csillag's leadership skills have earned him the opportunity to go to the nation's capitol.

Zachary says his teachers nominated him to attend the leadership conference in Washington D.C. He enjoys directing people and helping people all while never having a bad attitude.

His mom says she hopes he gets to meet different people. She adds that she hopes he understands what an honor it was for him to be chosen.

Zachary says he hopes to use his leadership skills here in the Bronx someday either as a chef, a psychiatrist, or as a pitcher for the New York Yankees.
