I am Gabi, aka La Reina Negra which translates to the Black Queen. I’m a twentysomething-year-old writer, content creator, and overall beauty enthusiast whose wig collection gets bigger and bigger each day. I graduated from Harvard University and majored in African American Studies with a minor in Women’s Studies and Spanish. It’s a large reason why I love learning new things about Black history from all over the diaspora. 

Currently, I’m an Editorial Assistant at Allure where I explore the ins and outs of the beauty industry and dive deep into ingredients, trends, and products.  When I’m not writing, I’m probably at beauty supply store looking for a new colorful wig, binge watching TV or YouTube videos, or searching for a cooking or baking recipe to try. 

Don’t forget to check out my work and follow me on TikTok and Instagram if you want to see more.

    Great blog! If you ever want to write about being a “teen” for the More Than Just a Girl blog your voice would be a fantastic addition. There’s no pay involved, it’s just part of my life-work supporting girls and young women.
