Hey, I’m Daphne! I'm originally from Rahway, NJ and I'm a professional ballet dancer with Collage Dance Collective. I enjoy listening to underground music artists and traveling, and I absolutely love food. I'm always looking for opportunities to grow through serving the communities I'm involved in. I am also the reining Miss Black New Jersey USA 2017 where my platform is Multiple Myeloma after my mother. Support my journey at www.gofundme.com/leedaphne.
