HELLO,

My name is Danielle Kawasaki and I'm a Designer currently living in California. I have the ENFP personality and as a Campaigner, I'm an energetic person who enjoys a nice conversation having coffee/tea with anyone who wants to share a idea/thought with me! :)

I also spend my time reading books or posts on Medium, watching Netflix Tv Shows, or doing outdoor activities when the weather is nice. When I'm working, I'm a focused and an organized professional.

let's get the things "Dani" (Done) together! :)

 
When it comes to new ideas, ENFPs aren't interested in brooding – they want to go out and experience things, and don't hesitate to step out of their comfort zones to do so. ENFPs are imaginative and open-minded, seeing all things as part of a big, mysterious puzzle called life.
 
As they observe, forming new connections and ideas, ENFPs won't hold their tongues – they're excited about their findings, and share them with anyone who'll listen. This infectious enthusiasm has the dual benefit of giving ENFPs a chance to make more social connections, and of giving them a new source of information and experience, as they fit their new friends' opinions into their existing ideas.
