"Gabrielle is a proud, black spoken word artist from Jamaica. Although ever-growing, her work has so far been a depiction of her own life experiences, as well as the lives of those who inspire her - involving mental health, black power, heartbreak, and self-love. Recognized for her multi-layered poems, Gabrielle began performing original pieces as early as 2017 and has since continued to pursue her passion for poetry into performing for Afro-fest and becoming a 2018 Toronto Poetry Slam team member. Together the team has made history as the second Canadian team ever to make it to semi-finals in the National Poetry Slam held within the States, and occupied their title as champions of the 2018 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. Impressed yet? Well, she’s just getting started."
