What people are saying about Danée

“Many of our students are first generation students from often complicated backgrounds who could easily relate to Danée’s struggles. They presented to a full auditorium and made an incredible impression with their message of persistence, hope, and the encouragement to seek help.”

“We received so many positive comments about Danee on the day of their keynote as well as in our evaluations. We had an audience of professionals, youth with lived experience, and family members of those youth and Danee was able to engage each population. Their presentation was funny, relatable, and also pointed to ways in which the mental health system can be successful and ways in which it can be approved. It was refreshing to have their perspective and I think a lot of the young people in attendance with similar experiences were very moved.”

“Hearing Danée’s presentation and being in their workshop was so inspirational and heartwarming. Their workshop taught me a lot about how to express my feelings in a different way, and gave me an opportunity to put my truth and my voice out there.”
