Hello! My name is Gertie Zwick-Schachter, and I am currently taking a gap year before I begin studying at The University of Chicago next Fall. I am the founder and co-executive director of Filling the Gap NYC. I recently graduated from LaGuardia High School in the drama department. I also studied dance and photography extracurricularly throughout high school. Additionally, I am an alumn of the American Museum of Natural History’s Brown Scholar Program where I studied computer science, worked as a research intern, and helped teach courses focused on the intersections of coding and science. I have extensive experience in education and childcare, and I am excited and passionate about forging connections with students and helping support their education during this difficult time!
