Embracing Diversity
As a multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion expert, who raises cultural awareness to create social change, Dania helps parents and children understand and embrace multiculturalism and diversity as a way of creating a peaceful and harmonious society without having to give up their own cultural values and heritage.

An Afro-Dominican, published author, and speaker about multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion, Dania is fascinated by the cultural impact of Afro-Latinos in the United States and how Afro-Latinas representation in social media is helping shape the American Latino experience in general.

Dania uses her knowledge of both the immigrant Latino cultural idiosyncrasy and the rich cultural duality of American Latinos to create awareness about the role of the fastest growing population in America. Through her book she reaches to the younger generation, while educating millennials and older adults alike through her talks, diversity training and her blog.

Also a storyteller and social media influencer, she has made it her mission to educate and empower people all over the US about the importance of a multicultural society, and to show how the contributions of Latinos are crucial to the advancement and success of the United States as a whole.
