Her work is informed by personal experiences in medical centers and their surrounding communities. Daniela studies adultification, in which Black youth are perceived as less innocent and more adult-like than their white peers. She works alongside young Black women and girls to explore untapped tools to further equip these same youth to thrive. Through this, she works to counter the narrative of adultification while also allowing young Black girls, through story and image, to have agency in their own representation. Important to her work is ensuring Black girls are able to tell their own stories and their voices be heard and celebrated in academic spaces. To do this, Daniela has partnered with members in the Center of Experimental Ethnography to use innovative multimodal approaches to highlight these voices and expand their reach.
