Our volunteer of the month is our scholar Gabrielle Barroso. She is a senior at Sarasota Military Academy and, in addition to her high school diploma, will be receiving her AA degree.
Gabrielle is an exceptional young woman and, as one of our ambassadors, has accompanied our Executive Director Luz Corcuera to community meetings and schools providing inspirational presentations to peers and community partners. She has assisted students in Sarasota and Manatee with FAFSA applications and helps the UnidosNow team with community fairs at schools and in the community.
Gabrielle is the President of the UnidosNow High School Club at Sarasota Military Academy. In addition to her academic load, she holds leadership positions with the JROTC. She has been accepted into several universities and has decided to join the University of Florida with the goal of becoming a pediatric surgeon one day. She is also the recipient of the Comcast Scholarship and just finished serving as a juror for the first time.
We are proud of Gabrielle’s accomplishments and grateful for her volunteer work.
