Dania Barazi, Founder & President
Dania was born and raised in Kent, OH. She graduated from Kent State University with Bachelors in International Relations and Political Science. She moved to Cincinnati in 2010 where she currently works and resides.
Dania has always dreamt of starting her own non-profit organization and sharing it with the community she has grown to love and adopt as her own. With a passion for positive thinking and inspiring others to keep going even through the toughest times she co-founded SEAS the Day in April 2012. Despite her own daily stresses she practices the power of positive thinking through healthy coping outlets such as spending quality time with loved ones, working out, and raising awareness of suicide through public speaking. Her favorite part of SEAS the Day is breaking the boundaries of silence and connecting with those who need a voice. Dania couldn’t be more honored to serve SEAS the Day and our lovely community.
