Dawn is the hands and voice behind SHONA's operations.  She does the stock, shipping and customer communication.  Dawn lived in Congo for 3 years which is how she met Argentine, Mapendo, Riziki and Solange.  Dawn is a English teacher by profession and was not planning to start anything like SHONA.  However she saw how talented and determined the women were, and wanted to do something to help bring their work to customers.  That is how SHONA was born.   Dawn works on SHONA as a volunteer.  It is a labor of love.
