WATCH Magazine: October 2022: Ghosts

STEPHANIE ARCILA SHOW: Fire Country CHARACTER: Gabriela, a determined and disciplined Olympic diver HOMETOWN: Miami, Florida HOBBY: I am certified as a breath-

work facilitator. I work with a nonprofit called Immigrant

Defenders (IMMDEF), which helps kids seeking asylum. The counselor that works with the kids asks them if they’d be interested in sound healing/ breathwork; if they say yes then I help facilitate it. It’s beautiful to watch these kids be so willing to try it and to use it as a tool in their lives moving forward. LAST BOOK READ: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez LATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: This job. Don’t give up, y’all. Dreams do come true. FUN FACT: My parents didn’t want me in this industry, so they put me in a lot of sports when I was young: boxing, gymnastics, figure skating, dance, soccer, judo, flag football. FAVORITE QUOTE: “You can fail at what you don’t want to do, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” —Jim Carrey
