Discover Our Alumni - Gaby Gonzalez, Class of 2013

Dream big!  That’s the motto and advice of Gabriela Gonzalez, class of 2013. Since her days at GCP, that’s always been Gaby’s attitude and it has not let her down.

Gaby is in her senior year at Columbia College of Chicago, majoring in broadcast journalism.  She is currently working as an intern for Bill Kurtis and his production company, Kurtis Productions and loving the experience.  “I was asked if I would enjoy coming back in the spring to continue working for them since they like what I have been doing,” said Gaby.

Gaby’s career goals are to start out as a reporter or possibly anchor a news desk in a smaller town market and then work her way up to larger markets after that.  “I would love to end up in a national news market, somewhere like Good Morning America or the Today Show,” she added.

Gaby noted how her Guerin experiences and her teachers helped and supported her college goals and experiences.  “Not only did they (her teachers) help me get ready for the college experience, but during my four years in college they still manage to check up on me and push me to reach my dreams,” Gaby commented.

A hard worker, Gaby is someone who will never give up.  She remarked how her relationships with classmates and teachers at Guerin Prep helped her build the self-confidence that allowed her to believe that she could be whatever she wanted to be. “The atmosphere at Guerin really changes you; you don’t just feel like a student there, or just an athlete on the team, but you feel that it is your family.” 

Good luck, Gaby! We are proud of you!
