On April 9, 2015, Dawn was interviewed by Changing Minds Online in a segment titled “Friending the Mirror; Making Peace with Your Reflection. Click HERE for this lively interactive interview about how the perception of yourself starts from inside you. The better you feel about yourself, the more you project that to the outside world, and the easier it is for others to see your beauty.

 

On September 12, 2014, Dawn was interviewed by Difference Press publisher Angela Lauria regarding the release of her Kindle eBook “Friending the Mirror; Changing How You See Your Reflection.” Click HERE to hear Dawn read excerpts and discuss the process of how and why this book, which focuses on finding beauty through happiness, came into being.
