Inspiring Stories from Fort Worth

The heart of our mission at VoyageDallas is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool. Check out Fort Worth’s rising stars below.

Charity Young, Laneshia Fentress

Our band started as a group of musicians who wanted to provide a worship event to help raise money for a friend & co-founder of a local anti-sex trafficking ministry. I am (Charity) currently in school, so I asked a few friends from school as well as a couple of my friends (whom I consider family) Laneshia & Darius Fentress to join me in playing and singing for the event and they agreed! Read more>>

Callie Dee

I’ve always enjoyed music. As a kid (before the internet) I would listen to records, tapes, and the radio. We would watch MTV when there were actual music videos playing all day, not reality TV. Music really shaped me and also provided an escape. I was in choir and on the Dance Team. Read more>>

Cindy Pennington

I’ve been in cat rescue for the past 10 years, pretty much since I’ve been out of college. During that time I’ve seen so many times where cats would be complete love bugs at home but would become afraid, irritated, and anxious when we would take them to adoption events and put them in a cage in a loud and new setting. Read more>>

Laurin McCracken

I am an architect and practiced almost 50 years. Most of that time I ran the marketing departments for large architectural and engineering practices. The year I turned 60, I had the opportunity to take six weeks of watercolor classes, 3 hours each Sunday evening. Read more>>

Trezz Johnson

Being artistically expressive has been embedded in my soul since I could remember. I never thought for a second, that the artistic talent flowing through my veins would ever land me in a position to create something astonishing yet innovative. Read more>>

Constance Jaeggi

I always had a fascination with horses as far back as I can remember, despite not growing up around animals, and being in the city. I started riding at the age of 13. Originally from Europe, I made my first trip to the US in 2007 and was exposed to the vast landscapes of the American west and the western lifestyle. Read more>>

Brandon Cunningham

While in junior high school, I took a black and white photography class and quickly learned the art of film, dark room processing and was instantly hooked. But as adulthood settled in and my family responsibilities expanded, I lost sight of this excitement and let my passion fade. Read more>>

Darius Fentress

Born in Detroit, MI and raised in Portland, OR, I started playing the drum set at church from an early age, and by the time I made it to high school, I was a featured player in the jazz ensemble. I began to play around Portland with professional bands at 16 years old. By the time I was 18 I started performing with Gospel music legend Fred Hammond. Read more>>

Andrew and Amy Gonzalez

ROCK Farmers Market began as a community of people coming together to make accessing clean, local farm fresh food more accessible. Our mission to give the busy working family an opportunity to feed their families access to local farm fresh food with the cleanest, most nutrient-dense food possible. Read more>>

Angela Holland

Wow! How I got started. That’s a loaded question. I’ll start from the very beginning because where I am from is absolutely relevant to who I am today. I was born in Austin, TX to young pastors. Soon after I was born, we moved to my father’s home in Eldorado, AR., AKA Lower Arkansas. Read more>>
