Gabe’s creativity, passion for art, and desire to serve others have led him toward a high-school internship at Wunderkammer. He has a deep appreciation of teamwork and the ways in which a team project can be “greater than the sum of its parts.” With the experience he gains at camp, he wants to continue making his own neighborhood a better place to live and care even more effectively for the outside of his home.
When you graduate, what field do you want to work in? Interior design, microbiology.
What skills will you bring to the summer studio? The skills I bring to camp are the following: A creative mind, diligent work ethic, a passion for beauty and art, and a desire to serve others. I have always found people to be fascinating, and I really like getting to serve others. As an intern at Wunderkammer, I learned so much about design and I'm excited to put that into use. With the experience I gain from camp, I want to continue to make my own neighborhood better. My mom allows me to be responsible for the outside of our home. It will be beneficial when I can put my camp experience to use at home.
What is your favorite designed object or space in Fort Wayne, and why? My favorite space is Wunderkammer. There is not just one person who created it, but rather a collection of style, talent, perspectives, and personalities. To watch many come together to create such an important and impressive space encourages me to work as a team and keep my mind open to others' opinions. The beauty each person created is magnificent when taking the view as a whole, like the saying, "the sum is greater than its parts." There is peace in that space where people can be themselves and (have) time to reflect as well as meet new people and expand their perspective.
In one tweet, how would you describe the color yellow to a blind person? Yellow is bright like the sun, zesty like a lemon, and the feeling of hope.
