She’s young, but mature. Busy, but organized. Worldly, but down-to-earth.
The fresh and exciting life of Gabriela Avila is far from static. Every day is something new for her; every adventure is different from the last. Between reminiscing about her study abroad experience in Hong Kong, to teaching Spanish to electricians, to planning her internship in Argentina, she is not only a combination of other countries, but a transnational student who learns and grows with each experience. Feel inspired, and maybe even a little intimidated, as you learn more about Gabriela and where she’s going next.

Inclusion for all individuals regardless of their identifying characteristics sounds great on paper, but how does it transition from idea to reality? Through action. Action is exactly what student activists and the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, in collaboration with Physical Facilities, have taken towards ensuring that students of all gender identities and expressions have a safe space to use a restroom.
