Daniela F. Gomes da Silva is from São Paulo, Brazil and is a PhD in African and African Diaspora Studies.

Dr. Gomes has been using her work to connect people in the African Diaspora. The focus of her efforts is to build international bridges to fight against racism around the globe. She has developed several lectures and participated in conferences focusing on race relations in Brazil and other countries.
As an educator, Dr. Gomes believes that good teaching involves helping students to discover their path, how they want to construct a classroom environment that allows them to pursue their future. She designs her classes by thinking about strategies that will contribute to students’ growth both personally and professionally. In addition, she values the concept of intersectionality and creates her classes under an interdisciplinary approach that welcomes students’ particularities.
