PF. Flyers has a rich legacy and what comes with that legacy is pushing the boundaries to expand and reach for newer heights. We aren’t playing the same game we once were in 1937, or within the last 80 years for that matter. Today, We are building a new game that includes new players who are looking to shatter any glass ceiling that gets in their way. Our new game players are a group of individuals we wanted to celebrate in our community who have big ideas and even bigger personal style. We’re here to get to know YOU and share the people, places, and things that might inspire you to be the next “New Game Player”.
This week’s New Game Player is Dani DMC. Dani is a Confidence Activist, Plus Size Model, And Content Creator based in LA. Her style is constantly evolving, and when it comes to fashion, Dani thinks of her body as her own personal mannequin. The one style constant in her wardrobe is sneaker style. Dani loves connecting with her community and spreading the power of self love.
We got to sit down with Dani and ask her a few questions about how she is pushing the boundaries and making change and here is what she had to say CONFIDENTLY!

I am THEEE Dani DMC. A Confidence Activist, Plus Size Model, And Content Creator. I always say I'm a part of the 1% of the world that unapologetically and unconditionally loves themselves. My confidence is unwavering and I have such a solid relationship with myself - that being said I knew from a young age that it was my unequivocal duty to pass my knowledge on. That is the basis for the content I create and the community I've cultivated on social media - Shout Out To MY CONFIDENCE CREW! I love what I do because it's inside of me, it's who I am and how I walk through life. If I can spread the power of self love to one person let alone thousands of people, I've fulfilled my purpose. I will never stop doing what I do - I've been doing this for 5 years and it's only UP from here!!
