Mónica Fernández – Storyteller at DeDios.dk

Mónica Fernández is a school librarian with a masters in Knowledge Management. She loves reading and believes that music in a universal language. Singing is something she really enjoys and in recent years has been learning how to play the clarinet.
Living in a big city, she stresses daily in discovering the little, ordinary, and simple. Sometimes the drops of morning rain in a spider's web or the purplish colors of dawn, others the little wrinkles form in someones nose when worried.
She is passionate about finding the right words to express an emotion or describe a moment. When the right words are found, the puzzle is solved and peace is achieved. And only with peace in one's souls is that real beauty shines through.
