S1 Episode 7: Leaving a Legacy in Education with Gabrielle Gay


“I knew, even at a young age, that I wanted to spend the rest of my life giving back. I wanted to spend the rest of my existence pouring into others and making the world a better place. Because, quite frankly, when we leave, we don’t take anything with us – you know? We don’t take anything with us, but we do leave a legacy.” – Gabrielle Gay 

This week, guest host Andrew Whitmire interviews Gabrielle Gay, an education activist and influencer from Barbados.

Gabrielle tells us more about being a “tough cookie”, shares advice about making ambitious moves at a young age, and gives us an exclusive look at the new ways her program provides opportunities for young women in STEM and legal fields.
