Feature Highlight: Gabriela Salgado
Gabriela Salgado attended camp for the first time this past summer. She heard about Horizon from her friend, Hector Hernandez, who has been attending camp for the past few years. She decided to come to camp because she had heard how much fun it was and wanted a break from her everyday routine. While it was difficult to pick just one thing, Gabriela said her favorite part of camp was swimming. "The fact that I had three hours in the pool everyday was absolute heaven."
Gabriela had such a great time at camp this year that she wanted to do what she could to help raise money for next year. She organized a fundraiser at her gym, Forsa Training, which will consist of a 45 minute open workout with a trainer. It is scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 7 th at Forsa Training in Oak Lawn.

Outside of Horizon, Gabriela has many roles. She is the middle child of five and has a twin. She is a certified school and mental health counselor. She volunteers at a hospital as a receptionist and she loves to work out. Gabriela is passionate about motivational speaking and continues to pursue speaking opportunities. "In doing so, I am looking to correct societal misconceptions and opinions that pertain to individuals with disabilities."
