ACCEPTANCE OF BEING YOURSELF
My name is Daniela and I am a journalist, LGTBIQ + activist and also an influencer. A native of Valencia, I decided to move to Madrid to study journalism at the Complutense University of Madrid. There I found very interesting new job opportunities such as the magazine "Cuore" or the television program "Sálvame". But I felt something was missing and so I moved to New York to live the American dream and improve my English. Now, back in Spain, I am immersed in the production of my own book with the Planeta publishing house where I tell all my experiences as a trans woman, as well as making my transition visible on social networks and collaborating in different TV programs as a social gathering, and all thanks to the awesome power of networks.
