From the Parenting Journey Curricula’s Name Game: Where did your name come from?
My name is Gabrielle Erika Witte and my first and middle name are after my mom’s two favorite soap opera characters – Gabrielle Medina on One Life to Live and Erica Kane on All my Children. My last name is my mom’s maiden last name which I think of as a feminist statement. 

My super power is: thoughtful gift giving.
