My speaking schedule is filling up fast. Daniella Amberslee Motivational Speaker, Author. Daniella Amberslee was born into poverty, and her early years were marked by violence and neglect in her home. When Daniella was seven years old and her younger sister was four, the fights between her parents abruptly ended when her father killed her mother in a drunken rage.
With their mother dead and their father in prison, the Amberslee girls ended up in the foster care system and were placed in different homes. Daniella was shuttled between five foster homes until she aged out of the system on her eighteenth birthday. There was rarely encouragement to stay in school, let alone get a real education. Most of Daniella’s childhood was spent simply fighting to stay alive.
How can a child overcome that sort of past. Daniella was determined to make a different life for herself. She wanted that education.
She wanted respect. She wanted to make a decent living and be an independent woman. She wanted a happy life. So she set out to get all that.
Today, she is Dr. Daniella Amberslee, a tenured professor of Psychology at Stanford University, and the celebrated author of From the Street to Stanford, an inspirational biography of her journey to a fulfilling life. Daniella wants to share her message of learning to leave the past behind, daring to hope, and finding the inner strength to achieve dreams, no matter how large the obstacles may be in life.
