Gabriella Brown

New Jersey Performing Arts Center  — Exceptional Promise in Theater Arts

My name is Gabriella Brown but I go by Gabby. I am a 7th grade student at North Star Academy. My ultimate goal and aspirations is to become a pediatrician and maybe a trial lawyer. My biggest achievement is that in 6th grade , I got high honors every quarter. One of my most relevant achievements right now is that I got high honors , on my emailed report card. Also my favorite color is purple , my favorite fun place is six flags and I hope I can go there in the summer with my friends. Also my favorite shoe brand is vans and my favorite ice cream flavor is cookies and cream. Last summer , I traveled to London , in the U.K and it was a very fun experience and it was exciting to get to see and learn about all the history over there. I also do extracurricular activities like chess, swimming, and I also used to do dance. I also like to hang out with my friends every weekend possible , and I also enjoy watching horror movies. Most importantly , I love doing musical theater and my acting classes because I get more experience as an actor , and I also gain new friends & get to see other old friends as well , and overall it is just a fun and entertaining experience that I enjoy

The Governor’s Awards in Arts Education began in 1980 to promote awareness and appreciation of the arts, recognizing the creativity, talent and leadership of the award winners. Each year, awards are presented to approximately 20 educators and 80 students. National and statewide organizations select the students for their exemplary work in creative writing, speech, dance, music, theatre and visual arts and the leaders for their exceptional commitment and contribution to arts education. The program also recognizes arts educators and arts education advocates, whose leadership has helped nurture the development of students in the arts across the state.
