Hi, my name is Daaniyah! I’m a high school student in the Chicagoland area and am passionate about advocating for the future of the Earth. Largely, I do so through what I wear. To me, clothing is a form of self-expression, and how we approach fashion can change the world. Shifting my perspective of what progress is from something that only people in power can truly do to everyone’s individual efforts matter is a mindset I want to share with everyone. Channeling my emotions evoked from thinking about the daunting climate crisis into finding a love of thrifting, upcycling, and painting my clothing has led me on the path to joining FTA’s Youth Ambassadors. I’m so excited to explore creative ways to conquer change and learn from the larger FTA community.
