Writing is also your place to go, to escape reality when it is overwhelming when you can not control it, a place where you can express and change that reality, your refugee. Sometimes when I am stressed about situations that I can not change, I start imagining what to say if I have the opportunity to change things, and it comes to me with a powerful desire to take any paper and a pen and start writing.
Emma Ugarelli is my name. I grew up in Lima, Peru and immigrated to Canada two decades ago. I have a Psychology degree from Peru, and I worked as a psychologist for fifteen years. In Canada, I pursued Early Childhood Education and I have been a daycare provider for the last twenty years. I became a writer in 2021 when I published my first children's book "Lou and his Mane". I reside in Kitsilano, Vancouver, with my family and cat Ricky.
