Understanding that the youth are the future Danielle recognized that there was a void in the educational system. In addition to math, science and English our youth must be educated in areas such as financial literacy, life skills, personal development, and business. She decided to do her part to fill that void. That's when she founded Empower, a nonprofit organization. Her mission is to improve youths lives and opportunities by developing their capabilities, which will allow them to live up to their full potential.
