Fabiola is a nervous, kind, caring, and intelligent teenage girl. She is skilled in robotics and seems to have a love for science.

She feels anxious and scared about the feelings she is developing for her classmate Eve and coming out as gay to her parents.

She can be awkward but ultimately means well. Fabiola is patient but shows anger towards nonsense. When Eleanor’s mom returns to Eleanor’s life, her and Eleanor bond and share their love for theatre. However, Mrs. Wong sees her daughter onstage and notices her incredible talent for acting a look of longing crosses her face.

She later abandons Eleanor once again, only leaving a note behind saying she wishes to try Broadway one last time. Eleanor freaks out and quits the play and needs her friends the most. Fabiola runs to Devi and tells her what happened, but just then Paxton texts her saying he needs her at his house. Fabiola urgently says to help Eleanor and runs to her, expecting Devi will follow shortly. But Devi chooses to help Paxton out instead. The next day, Eleanor is sad and miserable, and Fabiola is angry with Devi for ditching them. The girls decide to take a friend break from Devi.

Devi is distraught and offers to make it up to them by having fun with them at Ben’s birthday party. Fabiola and Eleanor decide to go but not with Devi. At Ben Gross’s birthday party Devi attempts to help Fabiola not drink the punch that Trent had put his junk in, but it somehow swooshes over Fabiola ruining her suit.

Fabiola is outraged and yells at Devi in front of everyone. Two episodes later, the girls reconcile, and Fabiola is happy and relieved they worked things out.
