Denied access when pushing my commit

I get an error message when trying to push my commit to the hello-treehouse repo.

Is there a way to get round this and submit my push?

Sorry I should of mentioned it was from the Contributing to a Project with a Pull Request video in the GitHub basics course.

If it is for a Pull Request video I assume you should issue a Pull Request on the repo instead of trying to push to it. A pull request allows the person who owns the repo to check over others code and decide what to add instead of simply allowing anyone to issue a push request and update the database.
