Daniesha was born in Falmouth, MA. She was placed into Foster care at the age 1, and her mother was granted reunification when Daniesha was seven. Her family moved to a large city where Daniesha lived for the next seven years until she and her siblings were, once again, placed in the care of the state. When Daniesha was entering 10th grade, she and her younger sister were placed in the same foster home in a large farming town. From there, Daniesha got involved in sports, theatre, and art. She found numerous supportive adults in her High School. One teacher, specifically, mentored her and made her a part of his family. Currently, Daniesha is entering her 2nd year at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and is majoring in Psychology. She hopes to become a licensed Psychologist.
