Gabrielle Union is an astounding example of what it means to lead a resilient and remarkable life.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1972, she was the youngest of three children. Her parents, Sylvester and Theresa, instilled a passion for education and hard work into their future success story. Gabrielle attended the University of Nebrask Lincoln and earned a degree in sociology. It is here where she transcended her academic endeavors into a successful career as an actress, producer, activist, and businesswoman.
Her professional journey has been nothing short of spectacular. With a career spanning thirty years, she has been featured in blockbusters such as Bring it On and Bad Boys II, as well as TV series such as Being Mary Jane and L.A.’s Finest. Her success in the entertainment industry paved the way for other opportunities, such as becoming a New York Times best-selling author (We’re Going to Need More Wine) and developing her own product line (Flawless by Gabrielle Union).
In 2018 and 2019 respectively, Gabrielle was named amongst Time Magazine’s most influential people in the world for her advocacy for sexual assault survivors, women empowerment and public activism for diversity initiatives.
