My name is Yessenia, I’m 15 and I’m from New York. My dream was always to meet Justin Bieber and on June 23rd, 2011, it finally came true. It was a regular day, I had taken living environment regents that morning so I was pretty tired from all that thinking I did. Later on that day I saw that Justin had tweeted he was excited to meet his fans on Thursday at Macy’s at Herald Square. I told my mom, I was so excited about him coming to NY. I thought that only people who won V.I.P passes from the radio would get to meet him. I told my friend to call Macy’s for me and find out more information. She called me back and told me that in order to meet him, each person had to spend $135 on a gift pack of his new fragrance Someday. I thought to myself “this is really expensive.” I was sad that maybe I wouldn’t get to meet him since it was so much. But then my mom told me she didn’t care how much it was, she wanted my dream to finally come true & this was the perfect chance. My dad called one more time to make sure all the details Macy’s had given my friend were accurate. The employees told him that there were already like 50 people waiting on line, (this was just two days before Justin was actually going to Macy’s). That meant people were going to have to sleep outside for a day. My mom told me to hurry and get ready so I did, then we rushed to the car and drove to the train station. We got off at 34th street and walked around Macy’s not knowing where the line was. My mom asked the employees and they told her where the line was. We walked to our spot behind some girls and we set up our chairs. We were pretty close. I was actually like 50th on line out of 325 people that were supposed to go. Later on my brother came, my dad had dropped him off. We slept outside that night, most beliebers too excited to sleep, but my brother & I were exhausted so we went to sleep while our mom watched us through the night. The next morning we got ready to go inside Macy’s to purchase our Someday gift bags. They gave us a ticket that we had to show at the door in order to go in to purchase. After we purchased the bags, we received our V.I.P chains. I was so happy, I couldn’t believe I had V.I.P! We went back home that day and relaxed, the next day would be the best day in my life! The next morning we got on the train and arrived at Macy’s. The line inside wasn’t very long, I was so nervous that I was going to meet my idol! Unfortunately Justin was late & had arrived around 4pm and had to leave at 5pm. We stood on line several hours waiting for him. When he finally arrived, my heart starting racing! The line was moving & I was shaking! There he was on a stage taking pictures with his fans. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Then it was finally my turn & as soon as I went on stage my face lit up. He grabbed me by waist and I put my arm around him too. I told him, “Justin I left you a Yankee hat, I love you!” and left the stage. I got teary eyed, my dream had come true. Next was my mom & my bro’s turn for a picture with Justin. Before my mom walked off stage she told Justin, “My daughter left you a hat okay” and he smiled and said, “Oh okay thank you.” After that we picked up our pictures and left Macy’s. That place was packed, everyone trying to get in but they couldn’t. I was the happiest person in the world! This was the best day of my life & I will never forget it! I thank my mom so much for sacrificing all this for me. I love being a belieber. -Yessenia @yesseniax3
