Gabby Villadolid (C'21) transferred into the Georgetown College from Loyola Marymount during her sophomore year to major in Justice and Peace Studies. As the daughter of Filipino immigrants with strong ties back home, Gabby’s interest in research stems from education as a means for furthering social and economic development in under-resourced communities which began with her time as a 2019 summer intern at the Philippine chapter of Ronald McDonald House Charities. In addition to creating and developing a nation-wide public elementary school database for RMDHC’s flagship Read to Learn English and Filipino literacy program, Gabby also visited and monitored beneficiary provincial schools during the program’s preliminary pre-testing period. Gabby continues to express her passion for community-building through her current roles as a Catholic Faith Community leader, as a weekly cantor, and a member of Georgetown’s Contemporary Choir. She was also a summer 2020 Education and Social Justice project fellow.
