Gabriela was just six years old when the patriarch of the family Andre Burgos, or Papa Bee, started the family’s Vine account. After a few short videos, they launched their YouTube channel, and the first video was a short comedy skit about Papa and Mama Bee’s short arguments, and it now has more than 890,000 views.
