Spring 2014 Peer Mentors

Gabriel Storck da Silva


I was born and raised in Southern Brazil, and soccer was my biggest passion since I learned to walk! Actually, soccer was the reason why I came to UWS. During my youth I did several different volunteer works. Added with my own experiences and the education I had, it helped to make me see the world with different eyes. If there is one thing that I want during my life is to make a difference in the life of those around me.

See what some of our students have said about their Peer Mentor

"I have somebody who I can relate to and who can explain stuff to me in a way I understand."

"She has helped me learn to better manage my time and develop connections with other freshman students. As a result of the program I have a better understanding of the curriculum at UWS. It's a greater experience than I have ever had before."

"My mentor made this semester a better experience!"

"She is someone who understands what I'm going through and is actually in one of my classes."
