Introducing our first ever Wonder Woman, Danielle Morrison!

“Danielle has incredible charisma. The girl lights up on camera and her enthusiasm is completely contagious. She’s on her way to becoming an internet celeb! She’s constantly coming up with new and creative ideas. When something that works for others doesn’t really work for her, she doesn’t let herself get frustrated.

Danielle recognizes opportunities that others might overlook, and turns them into gold.”- Alyssa Singh, Sseko Mentor Fellow
