Biblography

Surprisingly enough, there were actually a lot more articles and information about Dana than I expected. I really benefited from all of ┬áthem with additional dhepinformation that I had during my learning centre, with my speech, and with my blog posts. I also watched some short videos on YouTube about Dana. One has an english translation and the other one is in Arabic which I got my mom to help translate the parts that I did not understand. Nonetheless, here are all the sources I used for my information during this year’s eminent person study.
