Here is a personal bio written by Gabriella:
“This is me. I laugh when trying to tell a funny story. I snore. When making popcorn, I try to fit something in before the microwave beeps. I am stubborn and fight for what I believe in. I cry more than people think I do. I appreciate an orange gerbera daisy. I rarely tell my loved ones when I experience pain. I often forget the point of the story I am telling. I push the door when it says pull. I enjoy sleeping. Volunteering is a part of my life and I recommend it highly. Despite extreme lethargy and chronic pain, I push myself to live the life I want. I care about people who don’t care about me. I love my family so much it hurts sometimes. I ate my first beavertail when I was 39.
I appreciate a mug of hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick. I will make time to listen to others’ problems in hopes of helping them. I am determined to not let anyone get in the way of my dreams. I am respectful of the elderly. I feel that I have overcome obstacles and try to live my life with grace and love. I appreciate well written music. I take copious notes in meetings as I will forget details. I love to be silly with my son and hear him laugh. I fear germs. I appreciate my girlfriends and my mentors wholeheartedly. I love the beauty of leaves in the fall. I enjoy standing on a stage and inspiring people. I have developed a personal relationship with my GPS and need her in my life. Giving up is not an option in my books. I like to sing in the car out loud when I am alone. I get very upset if I witness someone parking in a disabled parking spot without the appropriate documentation. I will listen to you, even if you don’t listen to me. This is me. Gaby. Talkative and forgetful Gaby.”
“Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. It’s not a matter of circumstance, but by choice. I choose to live a life that matters. Volunteering will always be in my blood.” says Gabriella.
