Daniella Pierson Reveals How Isabella Strahan’s Cancer Journey Inspired $100K Grant Named After Her

Daniella Pierson is sharing the story behind her trailblazing journey as a young entrepreneur. The Newsette and Wondermind founder joins Access Daily’s Mario Lopez to reflect on her rise to success after launching her first company at just 19 years old. By 27, she was named one of the wealthiest self-made women of color in the U.S., and Daniella reveals the best advice she got from mentor Diane Von Furstenberg and why her newest venture, Be a Breadwinner, is helping carve a path to success for other female business owners. Daniella also explains why she named a $100K grant after Michael Strahan’s daughter, Isabella Strahan, and how the teen’s cancer journey inspired her to invite Isabella to help choose the grant’s recipient. “She embodies everything that being an entrepreneur is. Courage, strength, perseverance, especially in these very trying times in her life and being positive and an inspiration,” Daniella said of Isabella, noting that the 19-year-old is the same age she was when she started her business.
