Gabrielle Naassana ‘25

Gabrielle concentrates in Microbiology with plans to take a gap year for research after graduation before attending medical school. On Campus, Gabby is a member of Cornell's original sketch comedy group, The Skits, and is an active member of Cornell Class Councils and Becker House Council. In her free time, Gabby enjoys hiking Ithaca’s beautiful gorge trails as well as playing Mariokart with her friends and going to the movies. In addition to studying Biological Sciences, Gabby is also pursing a Performing and Media Arts Minor. This summer, Gabby is shadowing multiple physicians, including a surgical oncologist and an OBGYN, in clinic and in the OR. In addition to this, she will continue her work with the Hospital Elder Life Program, or HELP, at Highland Hospital. She’s been a volunteer there since high school and loves interacting with patients. In previous summers, Gabby has also completed an internship with an internal medicine physician.


Gabrielle's words of advice to incoming students:

"Use Freshman year as an opportunity to try new things, join clubs, meet friends, and explore campus and Ithaca altogether. Don’t stress over the little things or doubt yourself – you made it here after all!"
