In April of 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic was emerging and the Black Lives Matter movement was gaining national attention, I was simultaneously overwhelmed by my privilege and ridden with boredom trapped in my house for hours on end. Out of a 3 am thought lying in bed, More Good Ahead was born. I dreamed up this brand, a way that I could combine my hobby of making art with doing something productive to support the communities and causes that most needed support. I started selling tote bags, paintings, embroidered art, and jewelry out of my bedroom. The business quickly grew to recruit partner artists, launch Instagram matching donor campaigns, and ultimately raise over $13,000 for various charities in just a few short months. While I had to take a break for a while, I am so excited to be bringing More Good Ahead back better than ever, and I am endlessly grateful for everyone who has supported this journey!
Hello! My name is Shreya Daniel, and I am the owner of More Good Ahead. I am from Chicago, IL, and I am currently living there. In May 2022 I graduated from the University of Southern California with a major in Health and Human Sciences and minor in Occupational Science. I am applying to medical school this cycle and hope to be a Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician one day! During my gap year while applying to medical school, I will be working as a medical scribe, volunteering in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, tutoring the MCAT, and of course growing More Good Ahead. I love watching The Bachelor franchise shows, Great British Bake-off, Survivor, and always New Girl. I love Taylor Swift and country music. French fries and ice cream are my favorite foods. And most importantly, I LOVE crafting for More Good Ahead!!
