Daniela graduated from Fort Hays State University in Kansas in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. She went on mission trips to Kampala, Uganda as a sophomore in college and to Nairobi, Kenya as a senior in college. That's when she fell in love with Africa, the culture and the people. Nothing makes Daniela feel more alive or closer to God than opportunities to love the powerless and vulnerable. She desires to live a life of purpose, to know that she spent every minute she was given well, and she believes the work Uhuru allows her to do that. Daniela works stateside to help in the execution of the Schools Helping Schools program and assisting with administrative tasks. She enjoys anything that spells adventure, be it skydiving, traveling, or hiking in the wilderness. Some of her favorite things include: sports, food, dancing, quality time with great people and nerdy things like human biology and math.
