'Marvel's Hero Project' Recap: Dynamic Daniella
Every week on Marvel's Hero Project -- streaming exclusively on Disney+ -- you will meet a new young hero making a difference in their communities and all over the world! In this episode, meet Daniella!
After a trip from California to build a house for a family in Mexico, Daniella decided she needed to keep building. She dedicated her time to fundraising for materials and trip costs to build more homes, with over a dozen families benefiting directly from her efforts.
While she was in middle school, a trip to build a house in Mexico was organized, and Daniella’s mom said they were all going to help. Despite being a bit reluctant to go on the trip, Daniella said she changed her feelings after meeting the family for whom they were building the house. Being able to help people made Daniella feel “powerful.”
Daniella went into action right away, raising money to build another house by babysitting, holding bake sales and other fundraisers. And she isn’t alone – she runs a volunteer group at her school and is accompanied by her friends on her trips across the border to build the houses from the ground up.
