Gabby is a Lone Star University student born and raised in Houston. Growing up in the Spring Branch area and now residing in Cypress she hopes to one day retire at the beach. Gabby's mom is an avid reader who always told her to read growing up but she rebelled. “She didn’t read with me but she would tell me to read. She told me to read but I never really did.”
Gabby confesses that the only book she has ever read in its entirety is TheHunger Games. “I am starting to read more now so that I can sound more intellectual when I am talking with people.
She believes that people her age “definitely need to be involved” in combating low literacy in Houston, but sometimes don’t know how to get involved. “There needs to be flyers and bulletin boards at the school to let us know what is going on. The best way to reach my age group is to put it on social media.”
