HARLOW COLLEGE has paid tribute to a former student who died in a road traffic collision on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old, from Hoddesdon, and fellow trainee dance teacher Charlotte Dove, from Cheshunt, died in a crash on the northbound A10 just south of Puckeridge after their car hit a deer at around 7.30am on Tuesday, October 15.
The Citroen C1 car, driven by Daniela, then collided with a Volvo V40 and caught fire.
The girls, who were on their way to The Dance College teacher training centre in Royston, were pronounced dead at the scene.
“We were shocked and saddened to hear of Daniela’s death. The next few days will be difficult for both students and staff, as they come to terms with the death of such a talented young dancer.
Our hearts go out to Daniela’s family at this difficult time. We know there can be no real words of comfort but the College community is thinking of them.
Daniela was a talented dancer who had her whole life ahead of her. She joined Harlow College two years ago to study for an Extended Diploma in Dance (level 3) and graduated in July 2013 with triple Distinction stars grades (the highest grades possible) and she progressed to study Teacher Training at The Dance College, Royston.
Her teachers have said “Daniela was always enthusiastic and passionate and as a budding dancer demonstrated exceptional commitment. Daniela was a truly amazing student who was a pleasure to teach and work with and who undoubtedly approached life’s challenges with positivity. Daniela was a very popular student amongst us all and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this sad time”.
