Entirely savvy with many types of dance & music, at the tender young age of 11, Danielle’s goal was to attend Juilliard Performing Arts School. Although she attended high school at Mayme S. Waggener, after 2 years she decided to obtain her GED. Unfortunately, her dreams were put to a halt with the birth of her first child at the age of 18. This was not a failure, but yet a redirection. From a rocky adolescence to surviving an abusive relationship and dealing with many of life’s challenges along the way, Danielle hopes her story will empower women from all walks of life!
