- The women who inspire me are…
GABRIELLE: Some women that inspire me include Halle Berry, Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, and Zendaya. All of these women have inspired me to keep growing and keep pushing for what I believe in.

- I am most passionate about…

If someone’s hating on you or telling you that you can’t make your dreams a reality, use that energy and put it into your work and prove them wrong. Haters are there to distract you from your destiny, so just keep pushing and keep believing in yourself. You can do anything you put your mind to! You go, girl!
