Reaching the masses starts with one-on-one

Gabby Perez isn’t working toward just one thing in life: She wants to start her career in television broadcasting and eventually land a gig as a documentary filmmaker. Through it all, she wants to share others’ stories. During her time at Whitworth, Gabby has appreciated the personal connection she’s had with her professors and classmates; she’s never felt as though she were lost in the mix. Instead, she has shared her journey with people who want her to succeed. Whitworth’s liberal-arts emphasis equips her to flourish in a complex world, to understand people amid diverse perspectives, and to lead with the conviction that “people matter the most. . .I believe that the simplest way we can change the world is through the way we treat others.”
