Gabe and Izzy inspired so many people that had disabilities or who were bullied see themselves for who they really were. They taught them not to give in and to keep fighting. She made them see that life is what you make it and not to throw it away because of bullying. She reached out to a lot of people through speeches, but even more on animal planet and the today show. The animal planet special aired more than 85 times with who knows how many people watching.
