Meet Danyelle Little, or known by her fans and followers as THE CUBICLE CHICK. I met Danyelle in Nashville at the BAM CONFERENCE and she was so inspiring. I can see why her popularity is soaring.
As a single mother at age 18, Danyelle had to eventually turn around and face the fact she had disappointed her family.
People in her life sent messages of rejection..."Now you will not amount to anything. You will fail." But, she knew she had a new life depending on her and caring for her son would be the catalyst to spur her forward to success....her reason to get up and get going.
"I did not need their validation. I needed to put food in our mouths, and I did not want to go on welfare. I also knew, they were wrong about me. I would not be a statistic."
What she was saying is, I MATTER, and in order to tell her son that he matters, she must persevere. There were tough times and lots of Top Ramen, however, she eventually went to school, got a job, and now has a thriving social media career. Will she be the next Oprah?...well, after listening to her in front of an audience, she just might be!!
"I would not take back this experience. It made me who I am."
Any of us, can pick up the I MATTER sign and make a purposeful decision to go on and persevere. She is currently a social media star and bringing home the bacon from a variety of sources, but, bottom line, she works hard. Thanks for the inspiration, CUBICLE CHICK! Looks like you have proven your naysayers wrong.
