Da’Neisha was born and raised in Houston. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2017. After working in sales for a short period, she chose to return to her passion of working with youth, which she first developed as an intern for the University of Texas Women’s Basketball program. In that role, she worked closely with the Community Engagement team to connect with students on and off campus. As a first generation college graduate, Da’Neisha understands the importance of mentorship and is eager to help youth in our community be successful in college, career and beyond.
