Our January 21st speaker is a great example of a young woman who is following her dreams while inspiring those around her. At age 16, Danielle Lowe is our youngest Famous 5 speaker to date, although talking to her over the phone, my impression is that she is an old soul in a young body. Poised and focused beyond her years, she easily shifts between discussions of her career, started at age 10 (!) and the importance of contributing to charitable causes. No stranger to discipline and multi-tasking, Danielle juggles the responsibilities of high school, songwriting in Nashville, and a busy touring schedule.
In keeping with our focus on inspirational youth, Fort McMurray Famous 5 has partnered with the Edge School Academy to bring young women leader’s front and centre during out speaker events, and who better to introduce an inspirational youth, than another inspirational youth?! Monday night, Paula Kuzmic, a 16-year-old hockey player from the Edge School Academy, will be introducing Danielle.
In past events, during the inspired learning, I have frequently been amazed by the perspectives and insights of some of our young audience members and am very encouraged that these will be our future leaders. That said, I can’t wait to hear what Danielle has to say.
Come out Monday night, and celebrate our future leaders by cheering on Danielle and Paula!
