Meet Intern Gabriel Vazquez

12 08 2011

The Museum has several summer interns who help out with everything from day camp coordination to marketing.  One such intern is Gabriel Vazquez who is at the Museum as part of the Smithsonian Latino Center Young Ambassador Program.  The mission of this leadership development program is to cultivate Latino culture while fostering education in the arts, science and humanities. The program matches graduating seniors with museums in their area so that they can get the professional and leadership experience.

During his time at ACM, Gabriel has been an Assistant Teacher for the Engineer It! camp, conducted research about visitor demographics and given tours of the museum.  Gabriel says he serves an essential role to be a role model to children and motivate children to pursue scholarship.  He also remarks that he has learned a lot from working with kids and attending the camp field trips, where he was able to talk to the heads of the Bio-Medical Engineering department at University of Texas.

Gabriel is from San Marcos, TX, and is interested in Bio-Medical Engineering.  He will begin his freshman year at University of Texas at San Antonio this fall and after that join the Bio-Medical program at University of Texas here in Austin.

Thanks for all your help, Gabriel, and best of luck with your next adventure in college!
