Danielle Bennett is a poet, communicator, and educator. She currently works as a freelance artist, as well as in communications for the education non-profit Green Dot Public Schools. Prior to this work, she helped run a family business in technical inventions and was a high school teacher in Inglewood. While her day-to-day work has given her a wide range of experiences in tackling challenging issues, poetry has been a lifeboat through it all. She deeply believes in the power of poetry as a cathartic tool and means of compelling storytelling.

Danielle has a Masters in Education from Loyola Marymount University, where she wrote her thesis on arts education as a venue for social justice. She has worked with University of Northwestern, Mosaic LA, Oasis Church, Radius LA, Saddleback Church, Biola University, Urban Youth Workers Institute, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, World Mission International, and YWCA International. Her work has been featured in the podcasts The Story Gathering, Sounds Like a Movement, Typically Hazardous, and Leaders of Transformation. Danielle grew up just outside of Washington, D.C., and currently lives in Los Angeles.

She is not afraid of heights and loves nice coffee. One day she hopes to complete the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle without any help.
