Daniela attended Georgia State University and graduated Magna Cum Laude in May 2014 with a degree in Anthropology and minor in Political Science. In college, she explored human rights law at King’s College London where she first gained an interest in civil and human rights.
She received her legal education at Georgia State University College of Law and graduated with the highest pro bono distinction honors in May 2017. In law school, she co-founded the Latinx and Caribbean Law Student Association, formerly known as The Hispanic Student Bar Association, and interned at Catholic Charities Atlanta Legal Immigration Services.

She is admitted to practice law in the State Bar of Georgia and the Supreme Court of Georgia. She is also a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).
