Spending most of her time reading, Danielle’s curiosity of the world around her was evident at a young age; and she has been nurturing a wide spectrum of interests ever since. From connecting with people across the globe, to spending hours learning the ins and outs of psychology, philosophy and whatever else piques her interest, she has embarked on the mission of a lifetime.
Being raised in the diverse city of Dubai has given Danielle the opportunity to thrive in a multicultural environment. Not only is she equipped to understand a range of the world’s cultures, but she has had the opportunity to travel, broadening her horizons. She has seen and experienced the vast difference between countries like her home in South Africa to a land like Scotland; as well as ventures in places such as Sri Lanka, America and Mauritius. This has led her to establish connections across the globe.
Danielle chose to challenge herself through partaking in the International Baccalaureate course in her senior years. Thus, building on previous years of Psychology, Art and Biology courses. Being assigned near hundreds of high quality and university level essays, Danielle has found a love for putting her research and passions on academic subjects into words where others may discover a new interest. Although, her talent for writing was found years earlier, when she uncovered a love of storytelling.
Despite her academic interests, Danielle finds herself besotted by nature and all it has to offer. Hiking in the mountains of the Cape, swimming over coral reefs and horse riding from a young age have all added up to form an adventure lover. But there are many things she has yet to pursue, such as obtaining a diving license.
Danielle wishes to embrace as many of her passions and interests in life as possible, aligning herself with the idea of becoming a “jack of all trades”.
