look who’s talking about gabrielle “Gabrielle is a little force of nature who I know will eclipse many of the accomplishments of many older entrepreneurs...”
- Dr. Willie Jolley Award Winning Speaker & Best Selling Author
“Throughout her talk, I was saying to myself “where did this kid get her chutzpah?!”. I’m more than three times her age, and I don’t have nearly that much chutzpah. She got up on that stage and spoke to a room of over 250 people and got a standing ovation. I realized that if a 13-year-old girl could move a room full of adults, then half the battle is in just believing it.” -TEDxRockCreekPark Attendee
