Dawna is the daughter of first generation South Korean immigrants. Born and raised in Colorado, she grew up in a an environment of mixed cultures, resulting in a unique experience and mindset that she brings into her work. She first started in civil engineering when entering college and it wasn't until a few years later, Dawna gravitated towards animation. She has always had a love for film and art, so she realized this field is where she truly belongs, rather than STEM. In addition to animation, Dawna finds a creative outlet in photography and makeup. If she's not on the computer, you may find her in the bathroom experimenting with a new look while singing K-Pop or musical songs.
