  Gabriel Ossa is a Georgia State student majoring in film and media, and he’s been living in Georgia since he was 5. Ossa’s family comes from Puerto-Rican and Colombian descent, and he has lived in Puerto Rico for a year and has visited Colombia for a few weeks. His father was a Command Sergeant Major in the Army, and he is the main driving force as to why Ossa enlisted when he was 17. Ossa has a passion for all things film and communications, and he is super happy to have found an opportunity to hone his skills.

What animal would you be, and why?

A penguin, because they slide around with their homies everyday and swim and it just sounds amazing.
