Description

(Replay from August 26, 2019) Daniela Pierre-Bravo has a lengthy roster of accomplishments: She is a booking producer for MSNBC’s Morning Joe and recently co-authored a book with Mika Brzezinski, providing straight-talking advice for millennial women in the workforce, entitled Earn It!

But none of these opportunities were handed to her. Moving to the U.S. from Chile when she was a teenager, she found out she was an undocumented resident when applying for college...and, as a result, was unable to work, drive, or receive financial assistance for school.

How she persevered is a story of grit, determination and optimism.

Daniela became a Dream Act student and took the opportunity to side-hustle her way through school to graduate on-time and debt-free. That drive continued as she entered the workforce.
