About Me


Hi there! Welcome to my site :)

My name is Gabriela Barzallo. I am a bilingual multimedia journalist, writer, and sort of a culture junkie, born and raised in Ecuador, and based in New York City since 2014. I have a Bachelor's degree in Media, Culture & Communications from NYU, and 

I currently work at Democracy Now! 

I have editorial, print, multimedia, and international reporting experience.

I have produced enterprise stories on human rights, migration, gender based violence, race & ethnicity, Latin American politics, etc in English and Spanish. 

In 2018, I worked as a multimedia reporter at Diario Tiempo Argentino in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and developed an independent media project in the Brazilian favelas. 

I have a passion for telling underreported stories and giving a voice to traditionally underrepresented communities. I strive for using innovative platforms and formats to create more compelling stories, reach to diverse audiences and enrich the overall storytelling experience. 

As a fun fact: in 2019, I got to meet and interview two of my favorite artists: singer Natalia Lafourcade & actress Yalitza Aparicio <3 <3 (yes, journalism perks, lol) 


As a cultural manager, I have collaborated with institutions, and artists in the development, promotion, and logistics of their projects. I currently work with the Latin American Writers Institute (LAWI), an organization devoted to promoting Latin American & Latino literature in the United States. 

 I am always looking forward to applying my multimedia, storytelling, bilingual and multicultural abilities, while making a positive impact in the world.
