Pakachoag was key to easing my adaptation to the US. I started taking violin lessons within my first year of moving to the US from Ecuador. The opportunity to continue playing the violin at Pakahoag and later join the youth orchestra* was a significant turning point for me. It reassured me that everything would be okay and that I could still pursue my dreams despite the challenges of immigrating to a new country.”

A little more about Daniela’s current research:

đź“šI’m thrilled to announce the publication of my latest research paper titled “Alkalinity Enhancement during Reject Brine Electrolysis: Role of Electrocatalyst Placement on the Outer Surfaces of Porous Flow-Through Electrodes.” This project represents months of hard work, countless 3D-printed membraneless electrolyzers, and many videos of hydrogen bubbles 🫧.

While at Pakachoag, Daniela studied violin with Sheila Reid.
