Gabrielle Peck is a senior from Framingham, MA studying English with a minor in Jewish Studies at Boston University. Gabrielle is very active at BU Hillel as a Coffee Crew intern and a member of the conservative minyan. She is also a writer for BU’s chapter of Her Campus, a female-led online publication.

For Gabrielle, pursuing a Jewish Studies minor allows her to learn about different aspects of her heritage. She believes in the importance of storytelling and that, even when fictional, writing requires a person to understand their background. Exploring various topics across the minor has allowed Gabrielle to strengthen her connection to her identity and create a deeper connection to the Jewish community.
