  • Profile description
  • My name is Gabrielle Wells and I am from the United States. I am currently in my second year of university with aspirations to one day hold a career as a social worker with a focus on community development and social and economic justice and peace. Upon graduation from undergraduate, my goal is to move to Latin America to first study and receive my Master of Social Work Degree, and then to live and practice my career in the region. Beginning in September 2019, I will begin studying abroad for an academic year in Quito, Ecuador. My plan is to travel throughout Central and South America between the months of mid-May and late August in order to immerse myself in the culture of the region and gain fluency in the Spanish language. I have experience in hospitality, working in restaurants as a server, tutoring and teaching young children (ages 4-13), basic construction (I have attended service trips during which time my team was tasked with building small homes by hand), and I am a native English speaker with an advanced level of Spanish. If hired, you can expect me to be a responsible, dedicated, and hard-working addition to your project or team.
