Hi, I'm Danielle!
I'm a director of a small alternative high school that serves at-risk and disadvantaged youth and a writer in New York. I created Struck Inside Out in 2014 when I realized that all of the personal stories I was writing about in my journals would help people who were experiencing similar challenges.
When I was younger, I thought that I was the only person to feel my emotions to such a strong degree. I used to believe that girl was too connected to her feelings. I now honor and embrace that woman as I know my ability to feel so profoundly is one of my greatest blessings.
Once I started publishing my writing within the Struck Inside Out community, I received such positive feedback from readers who were relieved to discover that they weren't alone in their experiences.
In the last five years I've been published in Best Self Magazine, The Olive Tree Review, Thought Catalog, Elite Daily, and Honesty for Breakfast. I've run writing workshops, created a mastermind with some incredible women, launched a podcast, and became a meditation teacher on Insight Timer.
My intention with this space is to uplift and inspire you to embrace the true nature of who you are. I hope Struck Inside Out can help remove the mask of fear and allow you to experiment with new ways of being, while loving yourself throughout the process.
I believe that when you're at peace with who you are, you're at peace with everything else.
With love always,
