My name is Gabriela Cabral, but many people just call me Gabby .I am currently a sophomore at Green Dot Charter School .I am a Dominican girl who was raised in the Bronx by her single mother. I am only child and this makes my mother’s relationship with me strong and more special. She has become not only a person I could count on, but a friend. I have a large family ,and I would like to meet all of them at one point in my life. Through the years of my life, I have learned that family is important and that they would be there through thick and thin. I love to help people and watch them succeed.Anytime a person needs me, I tend to be there for them. My goals are my main focus, and I believe that nothing or nobody can stop me from achieving my dreams.

In school, I am a very amicable person. I am also very social and talkative. Schools is my main focus because I believe that it is the only path for a person’s success in life. I like spending time in school but I don't always like to do the work because I am very lazy. I like to learn and to experience new things. In school, I am very energetic and an optimistic. I always try my best because life is too short for me to be settling for the minimum. Thanks to this, I have excellent grades in school.My main motivation that moves me to always doing my best is my mom. She is always on top of my grades and is always pushing me so that I would do my best.

When I am not in school, I am very playful and a little carefree. Out of school I don't like to stress because then this would get the best of my emotions. Most of the time I am happy because I spend most of my time with people that I am able to enjoy myself with. I am not afraid to meet new people and I don't consider myself to be shy. My friend are funny and unique , but they are also benevolent and trustful. They support me and are always there to make me laugh. I love to laugh and to listen to music, it is just something that just makes life enjoyable . I have always been a trustful person because I like to help people when they have a problem or when they are down. I love spending time with people. In the winter, I tend to be more lazy and i don't really go out, but in the summer I am always ready to go outside . I do consider myself an odd ball, but I'm just god’s little special creation.
