Espinal overcomes obstacles

Martin Espinal
NEWBURGH - Martin Espinal is a recent graduate from Newburgh Free Academy. He graduated in the top 30 percentile of his senior class. What makes Martin different from other students is that he has Asperger’s Syndrome (high-functioning autism).

Despite his many struggles, Espinal will be attending the Lincoln Culinary Institute in Connecticut this July. He hopes to one day open his own restaurant and let other students know that they can live their dreams, too.
