After graduation, Gamblin said she wants to continue her education at a college in Montana. Although she is unsure what to study she has looked into marketing or social work.

“I need to do research and learn more about my passions to decide what career will fit me best.”

Gamblin was nominated by her volleyball coach, Darshaya Gallard.

"She always has a positive attitude and lifts the spirits of everyone around her," Gallard said.

In her free time, Gamblin enjoys hiking, watching movies and funny tv shows. She is on the volleyball team, Gear Up and TRIO.
