Dania has always been an avid reader and storyteller since a young age. The idea behind this story comes from a song she used to sing about a stuffed animal she owned as a child with which she put on shows and made up bedtime stories for her two younger sisters. Dania currently resides in San Diego, California where she works as a full time refugee caseworker and part-time at a non profit youth leadership development organization. She enjoys spending time with her family and two kittens. She hopes that Bubbles can inspire young readers to recognize the power of words to hurt and to heal.
