Gabe is passionate about fitness and connecting with people. He believes that constantly challenging himself and persistently striving to gain knowledge is not only the best, but the only way to live life. He is passionate about learning languages and connecting with people through them, and cherishes the moment when someone chuckles and finally figures out what he's trying to say in either Spanish, Italian, or Arabic. He is an avid chess player, baseball player, and music listener. His goals for the year are to fully immerse himself in an entirely new community, and to stray away from staying in his comfort zones by taking risks and trying new things. "Everything in life is worth overdoing".
