Dawn has also worked as the Interim Media Relations Director and as the Assistant to the Communications Director at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. as part of the company's prestigious Allen Lee Hughes Fellowship. In the Fellowship programme’s 20-year history, Dawn had the unique honour of being one of only two people invited to participate for a second season at Arena Stage.
In 2001, Dawn was awarded a full scholarship to Boston University where she pursued a degree in film and television with an emphasis on screenwriting and production. Dawn was named Boston University’s Outstanding Student Screenwriter in 2004. Her short film script, Fresh Kills won first prize in the Gary Fleder/Scott Rosenberg Short Screenplay Competition at Boston University and was a finalist in both the Colour of Film Collaborative and the Roy W. Dean New York Film Grant Competitions of 2005.
After graduating from Boston University, Dawn worked briefly for WABC Boston Channel 5 as a Public Affairs Associate. She returned to Trinidad in 2006 where she garnered the support of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Company’s Script Development Fund to develop her feature- length screenplay, Lex Talionis.
In February 2008, Dawn and her business partner Natacha Jones launched Doux Doux Doux Darling Productions Ltd., an all-media production and events management company, which also specialises in publicity and online marketing campaigns for businesses. Doux Doux Darling Productions Ltd. was hired for the marketing and online promotion of the 2008 and 2009 editions of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, which enjoyed double the attendance numbers it had received in 2007.
