Danniel Mejía Romero
Robinson Alumnus, Class of 2015
College: Stetson University
Major: Health Sciences and Music
If you ever had the chance to share a conversation with Danniel, it’s very possible you were smitten by his charm. This 2015 alumnus, recipient of many awards, including the prestigious Robinson Award, won the hearts of the entire Robinson community. Danniel recently visited us to reminiscence his high school days and to let us know what’s been going on with him.
After graduating from Robinson, Danniel went to Stetson University to study Health Sciences and Music. It might strike you as odd, but the combination of these two subjects truly represent him. Danniel was both an excellent academic leader and a spectacular performer. Who could forget when he performed “She’s like the wind” at the the Belkis Escribano Klau Memorial? We sure can’t.
Earlier this month, we learned he will be performing Te Regalo un Bolero at Teatro Tapia on November 12. The news made the entire Robinson family boast with pride! Te regalo un bolero is a concert where new generation singers will perform boleros by renowned Puerto Rican composers such as Rafael Hernández, Sylvia Rexach, Bobby Capó and José Nogueras.
We had to ask Danniel how he managed to enter the entertainment business while persuing a carrier in health sciences. “Robinson creates leaders. I grew in so many ways: mentally, emotionally, artistically… I am capable of managing many projects at once thanks to the discipline and organization skills I developed here.”
He feels especially proud to know that the Robinson community supports him. “I never imagined how building relationships and networking help you achieve dreams like this. I am so happy to be here in my island, in my school! Life has definitely been good to me.” Danniel also mentioned the important role his mother has played in this process. “She has been my biggest blessing, her advice is impeccable. She’s my mom manager!”
Danniel couldn’t leave without mentioning how impressed he is with our Music and Performing Arts Program. “The program has grown so much. I have to say that it is one of the best I’ve seen so far.”
When asked what are his future plans in the music business, he says his favorite music genre is Pop Music but has to admit he’s fallen in love with the boleros.
