Daniella Abraham, known professionally as Chef Danie, has made a name for herself in the culinary world as an international chef and entrepreneur. From running a full-scale experiential catering business, to helping open restaurants all over the world, Abraham is working her way to the top.
While she’s had great success, she has also faced a number of hardships that have made her more resilient than ever. “It has paid off and will continue to pay off because I’m not done yet. We as women have to have the audacity to persevere.”
Later down the line, Abraham hopes to step away from the kitchen so young women of color she mentors can step into her place. Her focus on mentorship stems from not having this type of guidance as she was building her own career. She plans to launch an official mentorship program in 2021 to guide mentees and help women of color who are finding themselves in the same exact place she once was.
“I have such a special place in my heart for women of color getting into the culinary industry and owning exactly who they are without having to change anything because of what society thinks”
