Yara My Friend from Syria (Written by Alhan Rahimi; Illustrated by Anahit Aleksanyan)
Children's stories have always fascinated Alhan who wanted to hear the same story over and over and over from her grandmother. Becoming a mother took her to that childhood land once again and she decided to share her stories with the world!
She has taught Bahai Children's Classes for over 7 years and enjoys storytelling. Watching children's various expressions along the story and their undivided attention brings the utmost joy to her heart.
Alhan is a graduate of Durham University in England, with a MA degree in English, Arabic Translation and Interpreting. Her BA degree is in Arabic Language and Literature. She is a native speaker of Persian and Arabic, fluent in English and intermediate in French. She lived in many places around the globe and is, currently, settled in Canada.
