Cowell Beach in Santa Cruz

Gabrielle Gillette

Gabrielle Gillette joins Lookout as a newsroom intern for the summer of 2023. A recent Cabrillo College graduate, Gabrielle looks forward to moving to Los Angeles in the fall to finish her undergraduate studies at UCLA. During her time at Lookout, Gabrielle hopes to learn more about what it truly means to be a journalist and how her writing can have the biggest positive impact. Gabrielle has lived in Santa Cruz her whole life and is passionate about giving back to her community through providing informative and reliable news.

Gabrielle is early in her journalism career, but her passions lie in politics (both local and national) and social justice activism. Gabrielle has had a love for writing since high school and her time on Scotts Valley High School’s yearbook staff sparked her interest in journalism, which she has followed head-on since. In her personal time, Gabrielle loves learning more about history, fashion and social change, and she can often be found reading a book, watching a movie or drinking an endless amount of coffee.
