Besides community service, Gabriella says her passion is ballet. At five-years-old, she realized she wants to be a professional ballerina, and she is working toward that goal every day. “Ballet keeps me fit, and it challenges me to work harder than I ever knew I could, all while trying to make it look easy, beautiful, and graceful.” Gabriella told us that pageantry, modeling, dance, and community service have helped her grow into the confident young woman she is today. She also credits Henri’s in helping her grow. “I love Henri’s because, no matter who you are or what you look like, you can feel like the most beautiful woman in the world there.”
