Emma Albert is a ninth grader at Beacon High School in Manhattan who dreams of doing a marathon one day.

“It doesn’t matter what limitations you have. You can do anything you put your mind to,” she said.

Albert, who’s in a wheelchair, says she’s inspired by four-time New York City Marathon wheelchair race winner Tatyana McFadden.

“Last year, after meeting her, I kept pushing myself to work harder and harder,” said Albert.
