Dasean ‘DRÁP’ Robinson was killed April 10th 1994, before Dashana was born. Growing up fatherless is heart breaking, confusing and hard for anyone. Struggling with anger and missing the love of her father, taught her many lessons. Realizing the large number of parentless children, due to violence, lead her to turn her negative into a positive with the DRÁP Social movement.
