How We Got Here
Dahnisha Adams has been writing for over 30 years exploring fictional short stories, and poetry. She later discovered her love for non-fiction as she desired a coping mechanism for herself- hoping to find the answers to all that she was enduring. Her first book titled, "Connect the Dots: Discovering Self-Love With Skin Imperfections," was published in February 2019 to help her cope with her severe skin condition called, Keloids. After writing her book, she wanted to do more to uplift, inspire, guide and provide solutions to the community, therefore Donnie's Dots was born.
