Daniel is a light-hearted and happy twelve-year-old middle schooler who is proud to be in a family with his parents, brother, one dog, four cats, six chickens and two ducks. Doing well in school is very important to Daniel because he would like to study marine biology and live in a warm, sunny, ocean location. Daniel’s free time is often spent playing board games with his friends and family, riding his scooter and bike, camping, backpacking, and listening and singing along to music. Daniel considers himself a good friend and likes socializing with friends in person, on Facetime, Instagram and through video gaming.
Being featured in the PBS Frontline documentary Growing Up Trans helped spark his interest in photography. A favorite quote that Daniel embodies in his life is by Oscar Wilde, “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”
