Advanced Dance, Varsity Golf, and possible valedictorian, Gabby Silva proves herself to be one of the most deadicated seniors

In the busy halls of Paso Robles High School there’s a star dominating class rankings, Senior Gabriella Silva. Despite her struggle with shyness, Silva has grown out of her shell with the help of her passions for golf, dance, and academic excellence.

Driven by determination, Silva’s academic journey has been very successful. “I’ve always been motivated for my academics, always setting goals, raising the bar, and being in competition with myself”, Silva said. Her drive has come from a young age, Silva says her older brothers and parents were good role models instilling the values of drive and dedication. 

Silva’s academic resume has been impressive. She has been participating in GATE classes since elementary school, through middle school and into high school, taking 23 AP or Honors classes out of 24 classes total in her four year career at the high school.

Her personality is nothing short of her academic inspiration. Senior Elle Wangard speaks highly of her friend, saying “Gabby is smart, funny, and comforting. My favorite thing about her is how easy she is to talk to”. 

Through her four years of high school, Silva has racked up achievements in extracurriculars as well. She is a four year advanced dance member, her passion for movement led her to become the co-social media director this year. On the golf course, she’s a three year varsity player, receiving titles as co-captain, co-MVP, and recipient of the Lions Club Award.

On April 30th, Silva announced she will be attending Cal Poly SLO and majoring in Biological Sciences, a major with a 4.2% acceptance rate according to The Tribune. Her ultimate goal is to attend PA school after completing her undergraduate studies.

Reflecting on her life, Silva claims “my family, my passions, and my determination have shaped me into the person I am today”. As she prepares to take on her post high school life, Silva represents attributes many would love to have.
