Gabriela Goldberg

Congratulations to San Marcos High School Senior Gabriela Goldberg for being honored as a Prudential Spirit of Community Award 2017, Distinguished Finalist and receiving the Presidents Volunteer Service Award signed by Barack Obama.

Gabriela created a non profit called “Santa Barbara Speaks” that has provided a platform for local teenagers to share their ideas and experiences through open mics and other events, and in April 2016 hosted a TEDx Youth event featuring four teens who spoke about their experiences with music, science, martial arts and business.  Gabriela, who was selectively mute for five years as a child, created her organization to empower other young people to share their voices with others.
