Gabby Crooks

Gabby Crooks, a Maryland native, is a rising junior at Stanford University, majoring in International Relations and minoring in Human Rights and Spanish. She is actively engaged in student government at Stanford, where she has advocated for a broad variety of student issues, including her work to launch #Students2Stay, an informational campaign that called for the reversal of ICE's July 6 announcement to bar international students from enrolling in a completely virtual class schedule. She has also served on the Appropriations Committee, which manages and allocates nearly $3 million in funds to student organizations. Outside of student government, Gabby is heavily involved in public service on campus, serving in two roles at the Haas Center for Public Service. She is a student assistant to the Cardinal Careers team, designing and editing a weekly newsletter sent to 1700+ subscribers containing a multitude of service-oriented opportunities including jobs, internships, and fellowships. She is also a Cardinal Service Peer Advisor, where she offers support to fellow students on the ways in which they can engage in service. Academically, Gabby is passionate about international human rights and immigration advocacy and hopes to pursue either a Master's in International Policy here at Stanford or a Master's in Public Policy before attending law school and practicing human rights advocacy internationally.
