|Student Profile: Gabriela Guerrero|
Not everyone has the benefit of having someone to motivate them or to look up to for inspiration. Self-motivated 20-year-old Texas Southmost College criminal justice major Gabriela Guerrero was among them. Guerrero went back-and-forth between family in Houston and the Rio Grande Valley after her mother passed away, and never had a parental figure to guide her.
Growing up and going to school in Houston’s inner city, where metal detectors in middle schools are common place, Guerrero was exposed to an environment of gangs and constant fighting.
