Photo Essay On DK (Not Donkey Kong)

July 21, 2016

So full disclosure, I dug deep into the Fast Horse archives to catch up on past Pony introductions — you know, just so I knew what I was up against. Let’s just say the bar is set p-r-e-t-t-y high.

Having said that: Hey! I’m Daniella, one of the newest foals in the stable.

To keep things interesting, I decided I would do a timeline with some highlights that might give you a basic idea of where I have been in the past decade or so. Visual aids are included for your viewing pleasure.

So let’s #TBT to….

2006: Graduated high school in Costa Rica (my home country) and backpacked through Europe. I later moved to Washington, D.C., where I started a new life as an eagle at American University pursuing my passion in all affairs international.

2006

2007/2008: Pizza with ranch/Family Guy/ultimate frisbee hatin’ pretty much sums up these two years. I obviously took this picture while confusing Washington state for D.C. Awkward.

2007

2009: “Studied” abroad in Buenos Aires.

2009

2010: Graduated AU, moved back to Costa Rica and (sigh) entered adulthood. Started my first real job doing communications and PR for the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (come look for me and I’ll tell you all about it).

2010

2011: I met Condoleezza Rice. That’s me reeeeally far in the back.

2011

2012: Met David (my hubs) and started identifying Minneapolis on a map. Also, first time I ever experienced -20F temps. Thanks, Grand Marais.

2013

2014: Became proud parents… to a dog. (Hold your horses, mom!)

Some additional info that might be of interest:

  • I love cooking, especially if it involves the use of a crock pot.
  • I love wallpaper (even though I don’t own any… as of now)
  • I’m the oldest of four siblings
  • I have a particular talent at finding life hacks
  • I’m really excited to be part of the Fast Horse team

I hope this post is up to par!
