Gabriela received her BA in Public Communication from SUNY College at Buffalo State and her masters in Urban Policy and Leadership from Hunter College, CUNY.
Before joining the BALI team, Gabriela was the Program Coordinator at Tomorrow's Leaders, a nonprofit aimed to serve overaged middle school students in The Bronx and Brooklyn. Gabriela loves working with under-represented kids and aims to be a role model for urban youth.
She has always believed that representation matters, which is why she loves helping young women of color achieve their dreams. Gabriela is a firm believer that the environment surrounding us is a crucial part of our growth, which is why she wants to be the bridge helping NYC's young women receive quality education, build confidence, and find their will to fight for equality.
