Danica Samuel is a freelance journalist with a special interest in multimedia storytelling. Her blog danicasamuel.com features profiles and reviews on emerging artists, fashion designers and startup businesses in Toronto. Danica is a contributing writer to online magazines such as foundmissing.com and ByBlacks.com. She is also a correspondent for Manifesto TV.
Firmly rooted in Toronto’s hip hop culture, when Danica isn’t covering underground performances and art shows, she’s searching for new stories on the streets and on social media. She’s a self-professed Instagram addict and Twitter pro.
But Danica’s ultimate passion is championing female empowerment projects. At age 16 she was part of a mission in Kenya and Tanzania to raise funds for the Limuru Girls School. While there she became one of the youngest females ever to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro.
It is that same bold determination, and relentless girl power that Danica brings to her broadcasting career. She is currently working on a mini-doc series about a controversial hair growth pill for women.
