Higher Education Family Support In Memory

Gabrielle Marsh was a bright, intelligent young woman about to enter her third year at Auckland University studying B Com/LLB.

On March 4th, while celebrating her up coming 20th birthday with friends at home, Gabby developed a sudden headache and within the space of an hour, Gabby was unconscious and on life support.

Gabby had suffered a catastrophic brain haemorrhage causing irreparable damage to her brain. Her family made the heartbreaking decision to honour Gabby's wishes and Gabby became an organ donor (stated on her driver's license and made known to her family). Her amazing gift has gone on to offer hope and life to others. This epitomises the person Gabby was.

Gabby was passionate, fun loving and kind. She smiled easily and often. She was selfless, considerate and generous. She was someone who impacted everyone she met.

Gabby changed the lives of so many around her, and we dream for her character and kindness to continue changing the life of others.

To honour her academic ability, her exceptional character and her future cut tragically short, the Gabby Marsh Scholarship will be established and offered annually to enable a young school leaver demonstrating exceptional character and service to fulfil their dream of studying commerce at the University of Auckland.
