Dawn is proud to be the "f word" - feminist and believes it is important for college women to learn more about women's issues and feminism. With this in mind, she co-created and continues to co-facilitate Being Fierce and Fabulous, an empowerment group for women that provides a safe and creative place for women to explore who they are and what they value. Dawn believes helping women rediscover their core strengths and connect with others in meaningful and empathetic ways is essential to creating healthy communities.
