If you haven’t already met her, allow us to introduce Gabby Melendez our favorite photography summer staffer turned part-time administrative assistant! She is full of life, always has a smile on her face and a joke to tell. We’re so happy that she’s been able to stick around post-summer to help us out around the office.
[with notes from Aubrey McKissick]
How did you hear about Blueprint?
I heard about Blueprint through Youth for Christ. Layton came and spoke about Blueprint and I loved the fact that I was able to keep serving after the summer.
What's your ministry background?
I have worked as a Leader in Training with San Antonio Youth for Christ for about a year.
What can we find you doing in your free time?
I really enjoy painting and drawing although my art tends to look terrible. [this is not true and Gabby just “tends” to be super hard on herself!]
What's your favorite thing about San Antonio?
I have lived in San Antonio for all my life and truthfully I cannot image living anywhere else. I love the abundance of HEBs and the culture of San Antonio. [Gabby had to be pressed to think of a “favorite thing” and also suggested that the Alamo and Riverwalk are her favorite things, which we all know are no San Antonians favorite things…]
Favorite vacation or travel destination?
I think my favorite destination is Morro Bay, California! It is such a beautiful little town and it [the temperature] is in the 50s in the middle of summer.
Favorite musical or movie?
I love Mulan!
If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be pasta. [Gabby specifies that she loves all kinds of pasta, especially Chicken Alfredo]
Stay tuned over the next few days to meet Judy and Jack!
