Dawn Young: Children’s Book Author

Dawn graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, and later with an MBA. For years, Dawn worked as an engineer and, later, as a manager at a large aerospace company, until her creative side called her to pursue her dream of writing children’s books. Her books include The Night Baafore Christmas, The Night Baafore Easter, The Night Baafore the First Day of School, Counting Elephants and her most recent release, Once Upon a Christmas.

Dawn is also a math enthusiast. When she’s not busy writing and reading, she can be found doing math problems, sometimes just because… In high school, Dawn’s dream was to have a math equation named after her, but now, she believes having her name on the cover of books is a million times better!


If you don’t know what you want to do when you grow up just get to know yourself. Once you find something you’re interested in, do it well. Who knows where it will lead to, it may not be a career but it could be a hobby you enjoy. Keep learning, keep working, and be kind to everyone. Don’t give up when you receive a no, sometimes not getting what you want will lead you to something better.

You can find Dawn on her website, instagram and twitter.

Key Takeaways

  • Don’t give up and keep learning
