Gabrielle Hatcher is a junior, Fashion Design major and Fashion Merchandising minor at Stevenson University. In Spring 2019, she is headed to Florence, Italy for a semester abroad, primarily studying fashion and immersing herself in the Italian culture. One day, she plans to be an entrepreneur, with her own fashion line and store. Considering that Gabrielle is the first in her family to ever have the opportunity of studying abroad, she hopes to encourage Baltimore's youth and young adults to have the courage to step out of their comfort zones and take advantage of new opportunities.
