I am in the process of implementing a Diversity Committee, and I am Chairperson of Advocacy and Legislation for the PTSA; I participate in poetry out loud and theatre, the Gifted Education Program, and take several AP classes. At our local Intermediate and Elementary Schools, I mentor students in need and run a club about math and physics.
Outside of school, I am involved heavily with my church and community. I am the youth representative of my parish pastoral council; I also altar serve, lector, cantor, and am on the Youth Group core team. I take classical vocal training, which I use to sing for local nursing homes. I love to play saxophone, and piano. I am an Eagle Scout, a rank which I attained at the age of thirteen; my project was a the restoration of a one mile walking trail and the planting of a butterfly garden near my school for public use. I enjoy playing golf and hiking. I have participated in several fundraisers for cancer survivors and also I have also worked in collaboration with the Gift of Life organ donation organization.
What Gabriel has to say about Wildlife Leadership Academy:
The Wildlife Leadership Academy is a great experience. It was educational, yet fun, and I met many people that I have made lasting relationships with. It is an experience everyone should have. If you are interested in wildlife, biology, the outdoors, all of the above, or even none of the above, you should check this program out! You will not regret it! I’d like to thank all of the coordinators and instructors as well as all of the volunteers that made the program possible for students like me to enjoy. Thank you for giving me all of the tools that I need to spread the message of Conservation.
Gabe is participating in our youth Pay It Forward fundraiser. His goal is to raise $1000 to pay it forward to next year’s students. If you would like to give to his online fundraiser you can do so here: Creating a Wildlife Legacy.
