Dawn shared her “aha” moment which came while she was presenting to a group of adults about teens and their often times “anguished” filled experience. A man in the audience stood up and asked her if she worked with teens – and of course her answer was “well, I do now”. Thus began her journey into create a unique program with teens that integrates her deep compassion for them, her own experience as a teen and her love of writing which she uses in her work.
This is a remarkable woman whose deep respect for teenagers is apparent in the way she talks about them and her work with them.
Enjoy this touching and honest conversation.
