Hello! My name is Daniela. Living in a society where my friends dropped out of school at the age of 10, and my own cousin at 15, I came to know the importance of an educated woman in today’s world. I have participated in youth activities in my town and carried out volunteer work, teaching English to needy children during my high school summers. I graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering and devoted my free time to work in various NGOs. I am highly passionate about female empowerment, and author of two poetry collections, while also having my personal blog – a window to verses, and to my cause. I believe it takes a lot of passion, wrong turns, experiences, and energy to understand why one was brought into the world at this exact period. To anyone curious about what brought an engineer in the early years of her career to focus on a blog on female empowerment, I say: “It isn’t about me, it’s about us, and I won’t stop until I find out ‘the us’ I belong to.”
