This San Diego, California native calls Boston her new home. Gabrielle is a journalism student at Emerson College with interests in writing and editing, photographing (especially in the Public Garden), illustrating/graphic design, and reviewing concerts. She can be found sitting on a bench alongside the Charles River or soaking up the rare East Coast sun in The Boston Common, sketching in her notebook and writing poems. She runs an art blog, http://www.avalonrevisited.wordpress.com, and enjoys watching as many Woody Allen films as she can handle. Gabrielle's absolute dream is to go backpacking around Europe, further her French language, and publish collections of poetry.
