LaSandra Daniels, you can call me “L” because I am the missing link. I would like to describe myself as a creative person. I use my creativity as an outlet to externally express myself through singing, dancing, songwriting, and acting. I appeared in the film, First Day, where my character was strong, fearless, and willing to ride or die for her man.
