Gabriella Aguirre is the newest Miss Southeast Iowa's Outstanding Teen 2017. Her platform is Stomp Out Bullying: Niceness Is Priceless. With her platform, she has applied to become a Teen Ambassador to raise awareness of her platform to others. Some her other plans include talking to schools, holding a dance marathon to raise awareness of bullying, teaching a dance class, and even more! Gabriella's platform is near and dear to her heart since she was also bullied in middle school. Her talent is lyrical dance. In addition to dancing, she is also a singer and a piano player (making her a triple threat ;) ). She is currently on the honor roll at her local high school. Gabriella watched her sister, Sophia Aguirre, a titleholder for multiple years, grace the stage at Miss Iowa. She wanted to be just like her and she was inspired to be just like her older sister. In addition, she wanted to spread awareness of her platform to others about how bullying should not be taken lightly and it can become serious.
