"Don't minimize yourself based on who you think you are, but maximize your gifts based on who you can become."  — Gabriel Bostick ’22

No stranger to the stage, Gabe Bostick is using his theatrical gifts and creativity to make a difference. WBRZ anchor Sylvia Weatherspoon featured the senior in a recent "2 Make A Difference" segment after the senior wrote and directed a "Hamilton-inspired" musical and speech which he and his classmates performed during Dunham's program honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  

“I was inspired by a combination of documentaries, musicals and previous school program to create this program, especially a quote from Dr. King which said, ‘Our lives begin and end the day we become silent about things that matter,’” said Gabe.  “Our goal for this program was to honor him with excellence and allow it to fulfill God’s purposes. 

A year in the making, Gabe poured all of his creativity in to writing the musical and its message about Dr. King and other icons of the Civil Rights Movement, first researching then scripting his masterpiece. 

“It’s an opportunity to honor those people who seem like nothing to so many, especially MLK,” he said.
