Gabrielle Davis is one of the first Jamaicans to be a cast on the popular reality TV series Love and Hip Hop: Miami, but she is much more than a reality TV star.
Primarily known for modelling, Gabrielle, 27, started strutting her stuff at Caribbean Fashion Week, but that was short-lived.
“I started out doing Caribbean Fashion Week runway modelling, but that didn’t last long because of my height. I am 5’4,” she explained.
That didn’t limit Gabrielle, as she independently ventured into commercial modelling. She even appeared in music videos and did a bit of hosting on television.
“Modeling in America is extremely different from the work I do locally. The industry in Jamaica is a bit more limited industry-wise vs the US or UK,” she told BUZZ.
While she wasn’t on the show for a long time, Love and Hip Hop: Miami was a stepping stone for the model’s career, and it is an experience that she is grateful for.
“L&HH franchise was interesting, to say the least. I had done the season and realised that I wasn’t necessarily comfortable with myself or how I came across,” she said.
“I appreciated the opportunity and thanks to Mona & VH1 for adding me to the cast.”
Since returning home, Gabrielle has been involved in numerous projects.
“I’ve worked on so many different things from TT carnival, Solange Govia and Tribe, Epican, Caribbean Dreams Tea, a few music videos, and of course, my on-camera hosting for things like Sumfest BTS,” she said.
Career in music
Now she is getting ready to launch her YouTube series and a career in music.
“I’m getting ready to launch a few things, a vlog called ‘Get Real with Gabby’. I’ve also had a real passion for music, so look out for some stuff there as well,” she said.
Gabrielle did her first gig as a disc jock recently, and she was beyond excited based on the feedback she received.
“The experience was very exciting! Stepping out of my comfort zone and into something I’ve always wanted to do. It is going to be an amazing journey,” she stated.
