Born and raised in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Gabriela is an award-winning Actor & Writer.
Moving to the USA at age 17, she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from the University of Southern California in May 2017.
Inspired by the growing trend of self-produced artists, Gabriela's mission as a content creator is to accurately represent and empower Latin American voices in the media.
Thus, in 2016 Gabriela wrote, produced and preformed her own solo show titled Las Garcia, about her relationship the women in her family and what it means to be torn between two countries.
The show played for sold-out audiences at the Hollywood Fringe, was nominated for 5 accolades (including best solo show), and won the first ever Fringe Diversity scholarship.
