In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month and presented by the Miami University Alumni Association and MIAMI Women, we will chat with Miami alumna, Daniela Pierre-Bravo '12. The conversation will be moderated by Michelle Thomas, Miami's Director of Student Engagement and Diversity.

Daniela Pierre-Bravo moved to the United States at a young age with her parents and four siblings. In high school, she found out she was undocumented. With all odds against her, she graduated college and became part of the coveted NBC Page Program in New York City, eventually becoming a successful booking producer for MSNBC’s Morning Joe as a DACA recipient. She went from an undocumented immigrant to the best-selling author of “Earn It! Know Your Value and Grow Your Career, in your 20s and Beyond” alongside Mika Brzezinski.

Daniela has traveled the country speaking to women and men of all ages and walks of life on how she overcame her struggles, found her voice, learned to advocate for herself effectively and juggled her mental health as an undocumented immigrant.

Daniela is a past honoree of the Miami University Alumni Association's "18 of the Last 9" recent alumni awards.  

Five live viewers will be chosen at random to receive a copy of Daniel's latest book, The Other: How to Own Your Power at Work as a Woman of Color.
