Danica Morris is a writer, poet, and co-founder of in her space journal.
Morris was born and raised in San Diego, Ca, a place she still calls home today. Growing up, she often felt alone or isolated due to her adopted and biracial background, believing she didn’t have a voice. However, through poems and prose, she gained the power and strength to write about difficult times being a woman and an individual trying to navigate through life while discovering who she is. She hopes to inspire other women who connect with her through experiences, and hopes to encourage others to fight through their words. In her free time, she enjoys baking and finding new coffee shops to try.
