JFEW Alumna Gabrielle gives inspiring advice

Meet JFEW alumna, Gabrielle, graduate of Hunter College! Since graduation, Gabrielle has been working at Cion Investment Management as an associate in their compliance department. Now she is transitioning back into public policy and is searching for the perfect opportunity. In her spare time, Gabrielle has maintained her French language skills by taking classes at the French Institute Alliance Française, and she is passionate about traveling as much as possible with her husband and their two dogs!

When asked for the advice she would have given herself before graduating Gabrielle stated, "I would tell myself to never lose the creativity and ideas gained as an undergraduate. Sitting at a desk all day often makes it hard to see beyond filing papers and crafting excel spreadsheets. It's difficult to remember that before we entered the work force we had innovative ideas and a passion to fuel change. I urge you to never forget those nuggets of inspiration. Continue to seek out the things that motivates you most, and which makes you feel whole. Volunteer, take a class and reach out to an old professor. All of these things will help rekindle the agent of change within us.”
