Her first book, "Connect the Dots: Discovering Self-Love With Skin Imperfections," was published in February 2019 to help her cope with a severe skin condition called Keloids. After writing her book, she founded Donnie's Dots, a platform to uplift, inspire, guide, and provide solutions to the community.
