Mercy Daramola

Mercy is proof that a creative person is inside all of us. With over a decade of professional experience in education, Mercy Daramola has expressed a lifelong, sometimes love for storytelling across genres. Stand up comedy, West African dance, singing, art collecting and more, Mercy’s creative expressions and passions are grounded in a deep love and care for global Black peoples, fueled by her Nigerian background and hometown LA pride.  Her favorite quote reflects Mercy’s creative approaches:

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.
