Daniel Gada

Profile photo of Daniel Gada I am inquisitive, kind-hearted, and I love to make others laugh. A true Libra, I am honest (to a fault), fair and have a strong sense of right and wrong.

Through the Be. Leadership Programme I learned my Myers Briggs Personality Type is ENFJ, and true to type, I am empathetic and able to connect with and understand other people regardless of their background, language or beliefs.

Born in Fiji with a chronic blood disorder, life from the outset presented me with a unique set of challenges. Growing up I was made to believe that my illness would prevent me from having access to the spaces and opportunities I wanted to be in. I have also faced challenges that come with being a member of the LGBT community and learned to overcome racial biases/prejudices - a result of growing up in a majority white/heteronormative culture. These challenges have made me outspoken, strong-willed, resilient, and self-aware.

I spend most days thinking about how to make the world a better place and setting new goals.

So far the Be. Leadership Programme has taught me that Leadership doesn’t have to be big, and is more about being willing to step up and do the right thing.
