Wk3- Classmate Conversation- Gabriela Urbina


Today at the art galleries I had the wonderful opportunity to make a new friend Gabriela. She is is getting a degree in education to become an elementary school teacher. She is very interested in teaching abroad in Europe and working with kids. We talked a little bit about my sister who also teaches english to children abroad in Egypt. She grew up close to downtown Los Angeles, but moved to Downey shortly before high school. She teaches gymnastics and tumbling to kids, and also enjoys hiking. Her biggest passion however is traveling. Last year she got to go to Costa Rica, and is planning a trip to Bali soon. Gabriela and I had a really nice time exploring the galleries together, and both found the piece “Love Letters,” by La Rosa very moving. I really enjoyed talking to Gabriela about my own hobbies and passions as well. She was such a sweet person, and I look forward to the new friendship.
