What have I been doing lately?

Always on the look for a new challenge, I am an insatiably curious person who is proactive about developing skills in a field where I could be an asset for my future employers.

Gabrielle was one of the most proactive and quick-learning
team members we’ve had at MyFrenchLife™.

Working with Gabrielle is great! Since her start as a writer
for DutchReview it has been a clear success story.

👩 Soft Skills

I am a creative and organised person, with a high sense of details. I love learning new skills, and I will easily adapt to new tools and situations. I am not afraid of leading  projects with a motivated team. I am the happiest when I can combine various tasks in different domains.

And outside of the office? You will find me in my kitchen cooking delicious meals for my friends, hiking in a pine trees forest with my camera, hanging on the couch with a good book, or planning my next trip. You can also find me on a rugby pitch or making flowers arrangements.

✌ Various Experiences

Since August 2022, I am active within my rugby club; creating visuals and content for social media, helping with recruiting new members, and being vice-captain of my team.

A couple of friends and I founded a online literary magazine in 2006, Mag'à Lire. I wrote book reviews, helped with the design, and created photo covers for 6 years. Read some of the 51 issues we published : MÀL 51 - August 2012, MÀL 44 - October 2010, MÀL 28 April 2009

Over the years I voluntereed for various music, food, and arts festivals, in Belgium and in Australia.

When living in the Netherlands I was a city correspondent for the online magazine DutchReview, writing mainly about the lovely city of Leiden. I also was a board member (Treasurer & Assessor International students) of Albion Association, the student association for English studies.
