Gabrielle Newell

Gabrielle was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. Coming from different backgrounds she was always inspired to travel and learn about different cultures. At the age of 18, she decided to study abroad in Costa Rica. During that time she was robbed and pushed into a train and that is when she became a below the knee amputee. Being an amputee inspired her and after learning how to walk she took a journey to New York where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science. Becoming an amputee has completely transformed her life and the way she views life. It inspired her to create a YouTube channel dedicated to her community where she speaks about the challenges faced and shares the lifestyle of living with a disability. It also inspired her to learn about ways to spark change for students who look like her. Today she works as a counselor and she is pursuing graduate school in order to advance schooling for students with disabilities.
