Gabe Salazar's I Am Second Video

As a kid, Gabe Salazar constantly questioned, “Why would somebody not want their kid?”

He grew up without a father - one who wanted him aborted. Gabe joined in with the gang bangers and the street thugs because they gave him a sense of belonging. But broken ribs, a busted lip, and purple bruises all over his body left him betrayed and rejected again.

What turned Gabe’s life from night to day? How could he even be a good father without having a father himself? Watch his story and see what brought him through the abandonment and confusion.

Gabe's life experience helps him to effectively reach and inspire students, parents, and educational leaders.
