If you met Daniela today, you would never know her challenging journey …


Daniela was born with complex medical issues and developmental delays. As a result, she has faced medical and educational challenges that have significantly delayed her development.

For years, she was placed in special education classes in the public schools, until she was finally diagnosed with a learning disability. In 2017, Daniela attended Easterseals South Florida’s Culinary Summer Camp and a passion for cooking was ignited. For the last five years, she’s been getting the support she needs—thanks to Easterseals and friends like you.

Currently, Daniela is thriving academically, socially, and at Easterseals Culinary Academy. She identifies cooking terms, uses knife-cutting skills, sets up after school snacks, and assists the chef. She’s a strong student in the program - a confident leader who is always one step ahead. She’s a shining example of how dedication, hard work, and strength of character lead to positive results.
