Introduce Yourself: Hi there, I’m Gabriela (or just Gabi) and i’m a 17-year-old psychology major catholic brazilian girl, who loves musical theatre and movies.
Thoughts On People In The World?: I believe that there are no fully bad people,only people that maybe are thought wrong or grow in a unhealthy or problematic environment and make bad choices, but I think everyone can change and be better.
What are your inspirations & goals?: I’d really love to help the world somehow, leaving a message of love in my own way, also I’d love to help, as a psychologist, suffering people to get a little better. Also, since i’m a huge theatre fan, I dream a little to become an actress or work with theatre somehow(even though I’m not quite talented).
How would you impact the world?: If I could, I would support and encourage, at public schools an neighborhoods, because I firmly believe that they can morning mold young thinking minds and really form character. Also, since I’m already engaged in a social project with kids from a poor neighborhood from my town, I’d proudly support any social project like that, because, many times, they can see beauty in the most difficult situation, which really helps me to always go on.
Struggles In Life? : Everyone else’s, I guess, keeping my grades up, being a good daughter and friend, being present in my church and its events, balancing it all just like any other teen, but trying to change the world a little bit at my current pace.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : I think I could love me more, but it’s quite difficult these days, with incredibly high beauty standards in a fat-shaming society. I wish I was thinner, but I also wish I had more self-love.
What does love mean to you?: For me, it’s very clear the Love is and means real donation. It’s donation of time and care, when you give up a little of yourself for somebody else, insisting to become a better person not only for your own self but for them.
