Dana Muwwakkil is a writer. You can find her scribbling with fury into one of her notebooks or hovering over her laptop, and she always has coffee with her when she writes. Dana enjoys threading words together in prose to make poetry. She agonizes over getting her thoughts just right about her life as a black woman, mother and wife in her personal essays. As an introvert Dana appreciates being able to relate to others through her writing. Her favorite place to be is home or to be with the people that make her feel as if she is.

I don’t know if I will ever be free of the panic attacks but I have hope that I will know how to cope. As of right now, I am taking things one day at a time, living my life and sharing my story so that others know that they are not alone.
