Gabriela Gil


What's one thing you're really good at?

Dancing latin music :) (aka: salsa, merengue, bachata, reggaeton, etc.)


Are you a morning person or a night person?

I’d just say I’m a daylight person and adjust my schedule to maximize that. 


What's the best thing you've ever eaten? Why was it so good?

Conch Soup at the beach in Honduras. I’m clearly biased, but the coconut and seafood taste, partnered with the chunks of conch and plantain is just so wholesome and refreshing at the same time. 


Do you read the book first or watch the movie first?

Movie, since I mostly read non-fiction books. 


Favorite podcast? Why?

I’d be lying if I called one out. I’m more into audiobooks and just sporadically listen to podcast episodes friends recommend.


What's your fondest childhood memory?

Road trips with my family. My dad was a huge fan of road tripping so we road tripped all of Central America and a big chunk of South America. I think the sense of adventure and love for the road stuck with me because of those trips. 


What's the best compliment you ever received?

Hard to think about a specific one right now, but probably something around my character or personality traits over physical ones. 


Guilty pleasure pop song?

Like a Virgin by Madonna. I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily my guilty pleasure song, but it’s definitely my karaoke go-to song.


What's your opinion on space travel?

All up for it. I am also very curious about the underwater world. 


Last romantic comedy you watched? Did you like it?

I had to check my Netflix viewing history. I mostly prefer drama or documentaries. Turns out it was Amelie, but I didn’t finish it so I guess not so much...
