Congratulations to one of Building Bridges Hand In Hand most devoted young adult volunteers. Marina “Gabi” Clark graduated from high school on May 19, 2018. She was home schooled her whole life and graduated with honors, as well as maintaining a 4.0 GPA at OTC through dual enrollment. Gabi has done volunteer work for as long as she can remember with her family and with various organizations. Some of her volunteer activities have included: highway clean up, Christmas gifts for the children of those incarcerated, packaging food for Convoy of Hope, and, of course, helping with many events through Building Bridges.
She enjoys drawing, painting, learning foreign languages, and writing. She supports and is active in organizations that work for change in areas such as fair trade practices and ethical sourcing of materials in the fashion industry, freedom for those exploited due to human trafficking, and environmental concerns. She has received much positive feedback on the essays she has written to bring awareness and advocate for change in these causes as well. Although she was accepted into every university that she applied for, she is planning on finishing her degree at OTC and then transferring to another university to obtain her B.A. in English.
Gabi, we at BBHIH could not be more proud of all you have accomplished and we are so thankful to have such a warm hearted, generous, caring, young woman, be apart of our organization. We are all looking forward to watching you grow on your journey into adult hood. We know you are going to accomplish amazing things while making huge impacts on all those you come in contact with.
