The wonderful SkaterGirl family continues to grow and I’d like to introduce you to the latest two additions to our author crew, Gabriela and Gienna. It’s great to have you onboard and I know that everyone is looking forward to reading your posts.
Gabriela is a fashion design student from Quito-Ecuador,South America and owns her own brand Edgy64 Rockwear, focused on rocker-skater chicks. She promotes local bands as a hobby, and now skateboarding too. She loves music and feels she has to help the local scene stay alive. She is a licensed event producer since 2006, she has the city’s permission to put up any kind of event anywhere in the city. So don’t hesitate to contact her for any event you wanna get going in Ecuador. She dreams on a day where she can mix her concerts with all- girls skateboarders, in a single event. bands and skate ramps. After 7 years skating she was finally able to create as a founder of “Damas del Skate”, where she gives skateboarding classes to girls for free and promotes skateboarding. She thinks is very difficult to keep on skateboarding without girl skater friends, and she is determined to help all girl skaters stay skaters and enjoy it as much as she does.
Gienna lives in Berlin, where she works as a media designer for a music club, a co-publisher of a little street-art-skate-magazin and a freelancer for an association against discrimination, right wing extremism, xeno- and homophobia. She also is a board member of the Görls Skateteam association, that organizes the weekly monday görls skatesessions, skatecamps and competitions. On weekends she teaches children in skateboarding as a workshop coach of the Skatehalle-Berlin. In her spare time she likes exploring that big skate playground by board, called BERLIN.
