About Me

Gabriela is a freelance filmmaker,businesswoman,an employee in a fashion company in Nairobi,Kenya.I did a course in Film technology and got exposure through working in various production houses in Nairobi.
I also involved myself in voluntary work in Kibera which enabled me to know my childhood home very well and got exposed to the day to day life.
This is how I came to see a need in my community hence started a water business which has been a joy to the people in my community.
I live in Kibera where I ventured in to business.I believe that it is worth developing a community if we care.
My hobbies are writing poems,reading novels and watching movies.My free time is dedicated to family and friends whom we share business ideas.
