Gibel Amador, Writer

Gibel Amador is a Latina filmmaker and writer from the borderland. She was raised in both El Paso and Juarez. Gibel is a first-generation immigrant; her father fled the Civil War in Nicaragua and met her Mexican mother in the borderland. Her father worked for the airlines his whole life, and this international background inspired a passion for travel in Gibel that in large part fuels her creative output. She majors in Creative Writing at The University of Texas at El Paso, a distinguished borderland program to hone her craft and write her own story. Gibel is currently majoring in Digital Media Production. Gibel Amador has been published in multiple literary magazines, with a passion to explore the relationships between people and the relationships we have with ourselves. She also wrote and directed two short films, "The Staircase," a story about relationships and fallibility, and "Don't Forget Me." She joined Minero Magazine as a staff writer in the Fall of 2022, and is currently running her own business "LeMagie Productions," which focuses on visual storytelling.
