Danielle Esplin studied BSc Food Science with Chemistry at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. She was one of the top students, and she got a full-ride scholarship. After almost three years of sleepless nights, working in the laboratories and experimenting with new food products, she realized that something was missing.
And that was the freedom to express herself as an artist.
Without telling anyone, she packed her bags in her apartment, waved her twin good-bye, trudged down the street on campus and got on a bus. When she crossed the border, entering Namibia, she switched on her phone and sent her mother a text: "I dropped out of University." She never looked back.
In Namibia, among the countless dunes that appeared like a half-closed girdle nestling the sea, her desire to write resurfaced. She started channeling her inner artist and soon moved to Los Angeles to further her career.
Today she is an award-winning author, singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, and model. She lives in Los Angeles. In her spare time, she likes to read or spend time with family and friends.
