At 18, Gabriela Lopez, ran away from her family who realistically speaking, she says, “are very old school type. Their thinking is like: a girl stays at home, gets married and that's what she does.” So, Gabi said to herself, 'that's not her way to live, everyone looks so miserable in that kind of living'.
She moved to LA with $10 in her pocket and into an apartment with 8 dudes from high school. “It was the funniest and craziest time of her life.” She said.
She set out to build a solid and pure foundation but just on her own terms. Of course it was very difficult to go through all the challenges she was putting herself in.
Now, Lopez is a fitness fanatic. And, today she is chasing the dream of becoming a superstar fitness trainer. She is also into acting. And not to mention, she's soaring in the social influence space with an Instagram following of 97K.
