Meet some of the fantastic people who make up Camphill

Gabi Branche

After graduating from NYU, Abu Dhabi, Gabi became a volunteer at Triform Camphill Community

When Gabi graduated from NYU Abu Dhabi with a degree in Interactive Media, whe knew she wasn’t done spending time in an intentional community like the one she’d found there and at home in Trinidad. When she came across Camphill on a career portal, she knew she’d found the perfect match.

“For the past four years university flexed the same brain muscles. Every day I’m here, I’m learning something new. It’s a completely different skill set and different brain muscles that I’m using here.”

At Camphill, Gabi has gotten to fulfill her dream of milking a cow, and she even made chocolate milk with the fresh cow’s milk. Gabi has put her Interactive Media skills to practice, using art as a creative tool for learning at Camphill.

One of Gabi’s favorite responsibilities as a volunteer at Camphill is cooking dinner for the house with a resident, who she has a weekly kitchen dance party with. She also manages Triform’s Instagram account, sharing life in the community with the wider world.  Gabi has loved her time at Triform so much that she plans to spend a second year there while applying to grad schools.
