Dawn of a New Day 365. Who ever thought that the 4-letter word I almost hated as a child...would end up being my platform? Hello! My name is Dawn Charleston-Green, and I am pleased to welcome you to my new blog. The name again is... Dawn (like the morning), Charleston (like the city), and Green (just like the color); and yes, I play off my name all the time, but it wasn't always that way. A little history As a child, I disliked my name. I won't say that I hated it...but I wasn't particularly fond of it AT ALL. I knew that it was different...but why was it different? And better yet, why was it so short?
