Danielle, the daughter of Damian and Karen Power, was born and raised in Wabush, Labrador. She is seventeen years old and is in Grade 12 at Menihek High School in Labrador City. Danielle has always enjoyed drawing and creating and spent many years taking art lessons from local artist Cheryl Hardy. Danielle’s favorite mediums are colored leads and, most recently, digital art. Her design for the “Spark The Conversation” contest, presented by the Universal Design Network, was inspired by the students with accessibility needs that she met through her years of being in an inclusive high school. Danielle recognizes the challenges people experience everyday with accessibility – whether it be physical, emotional, educational, or vocational. Creating a world where everybody is able to access the life they deserve and desire is a vision for the future and Danielle’s design shows how we can come together as one to make the world a better place for all.
Danielle's artwork has been adapted to be UDNNL's logo's going forward. We Thank her and all those who submitted their artwork. Please enjoy some of the fine images from our wonderful students of Newfoundland & Labrador and we look forward to 2020-21 campaign.
