Gaby Motta goes over and beyond for seniors living in the waterfront community of Toronto. She knows almost every senior in the area by name and makes a point to connect with as many as she can each day. She walks the walk and continuously works to bring forth new programs that will enhance their lives.

Gaby has been a longtime supporter and advocate within the Latinx community in her role as executive committee member for the Hispanic Development Council which included the supporting students for international internships in their corresponding industries. Additionally as President of Casa Dona Juana, York Hispanic Centre and as the Coordinator for the Advisory Council to the Peruvian consulate she has left her mark on the numerous cultural, social and community gatherings which continue to this day.

The Social Work community has benefited from Gaby's work in mentoring students over her 25 year career at the Waterfront Neighborhood Centre. She has developed diverse and inclusive programming for underserved communities from children and youth to adults and seniors and those with disabilities. Her experience and voice has been used by teachers, panels, conferences and in educational resources for younger generations to learn and expand upon. As a parent and student advocate she has worked alongside with Children's Aid and Community Development projects in the GTA. Motta has been an important figure within the community for over two decades volunteering to improve the equity and inclusion with the TDSB and healthcare services aimed at underserved ethno cultural communities resulting in a better Toronto for our children.
