Gabrielle Shapiro

This is Gabby. She is a senior at UM majoring in advertising and minoring in marketing. Gabby began a jewelry startup when she was 17 and carried it out to The Launch Pad, who have helped immensely with connecting to mentors and lifting her product off the ground.

Gabby thinks Miami is a great environment to start something because of the international and artistic scene. She is super passionate about entrepreneurship and everyday is learning from others, while sharing everything valuable she’s learned with friends and family who have their own ideas.

Currently Gabby is working on her startup’s social media and marketing plans, and is so grateful to have peers from the School of Communication produce content, which they are using to build their creative portfolios.
