Achieving Dreams with Mecu.06

Paula “Mecu” Videla from Buenos Aires, Argentina worked for three years to save money to come to the United States. She wanted to ride alongside American female skaters– develop her skills and learn more about the culture. Mecu achieved this goal last month here in Southern California. She was able to participate in the Exposure skate contest, place 2nd in vert and meet some of her role models, such as Cara-Beth Burnside and Mimi Knoop. With the help of Poseiden Foundation and the Ott family, she was also able to volunteer teaching skateboarding at La Casita, interact with young children and encourage them to follow their dreams. Recently she defined another dream of her own, to make it back to the United States in 2015 to participate in the Vans Combi Pool Women’s Invitational. Luckily, she already received her invitation! Congratulations, Mecu, we believe in you!
