Raised by a single mother and a twin
Gorman has a twin sister called Gabrielle who is an activist. The pair were born prematurely and raised together with their other sibling by their single mother Joan Wicks who was a teacher.
Gorman’s biggest role model is her mother. “My mother worked so hard while raising three kids to get her doctorate and master’s degrees in Education. She inspires me every day to seek higher education not only for myself but for the other students around me.”
Her mother is very proud of all that her daughter has been able to accomplish regardless of the challenges.
“Every child has a gift, it just has to be discovered,” she said. “Where there’s a deficit, there’s a place where the child makes it up.”
