Have a passion you want to share with the world? Interested in starting a new hobby but you're not sure where to start? This project is for you.

Passion: noun; an intense desire or enthusiasm for something.

Here at Dani Dearest we focus on encouraging and empowering college and millennial women to become successful in their studies, strive to go far in their careers, and feel creatively fulfilled. The last couple of weeks I have been working hard on a project to expand this goal, and I am excited to introduce it to you: The Passion Project.

Finding a hobby or a passion has been proven to help reduce depression and anxiety which can help to lead to an overall happier life. I believe that hobbies and passions help to form who we are: our beliefs, our moral compass, our foundation, and our mental and physical health. As one grows up they learn what they like and what they don’t, which crafts and creates their personality.

Made For You

Trying new things, working on discovering a new passion, can be life changing. However, it can also be daunting. With each activity comes a learning curve. What do I need to know to start this hobby? What supplies to I need? What if I hate it? What if I’ve never done anything like this before? That’s why we’re here.

If you’re interested in starting a new hobby, discovering a passion or a way to be creatively fulfilled, you’ve found the right place. Every guide here is crafted with you in mind: to help you kick start a new portion of your life.

Ever wanted to start backpacking but you’re unsure of what to put in your backpack or what trails to begin on? Ever wanted to start a blog but you are nervous about what site hosting to go with? Ever wanted to pick up drawing but feel you have no artistic skill? The Passion Project is here to help.

Each guide is written by a new author with the goal of educating you on their passion. Right now this is still under construction, but they will each be published as a new post here.

Help Us: Contributing


There are as many unique hobbies and passions as there are people, and I couldn’t nearly cover them all by myself, so I’m requesting a little help. Most every post in The Passion Project will be written by a guest author who is passionate about a specific hobby.

If you have a passion that you want to share with the world, a hobby that you want to help others pick up, this is your time to share it.

If you are a blogger, not only is this great experience writing but it is also great exposure for your blog as it will be published on this website as well as shared on all of our social media channels.

If you are not a blogger, this is a great way to become creatively fulfilled (writing about something you’re passionate about is so fun!) while helping people and making new friends.

All are welcome.
