We had the good fortune of connecting with Dawn Holliday and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dawn, how do you define success?
My definition of success if accomplishing anything you set your mind to do. Whether the goal is big or small your dedication to accomplishing this goal is what success is. The outcome can be good or bad, but it’s the ambition that makes it successful. Many times people might look at things as a failure because the outcome may not have been what they expected, but many people fail to realize its the strength to keep going which makes them successful. I believe everyone can be successful, it’s about never giving up. Changing the narrative I CAN’T to I CAN and I WILL.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Ms. Holliday’s Virtual Tutoring Center is my baby I created less than a year ago. I created this platform during the pandemic because as an educator I realized the default that children were experiencing with their education. I wanted to create a place where they can get extra educational assistance on a 1:1 basis without feeling pressured. Not only is my platform geared to just one audience, I provide services to children with different learning abilities. Not every child learns the same and some schools don’t have the resources to provide differential education to students. Usually, teachers are in a classroom with over 20 students and 1 -3 students may need more time or extra support so that they can get the best education they deserve. It hasn’t been easy to create this platform as I am still in the process in making it better everyday, but I love this challenge. This challenge lets me be creative and understand that with challenge becomes greatness. I want the world to know that Dawn Holliday is here to make a change for our children today and in the future. My passion for what I do is beyond words, I want to continue showing parents that their is someone out there that really cares about the health of their child’s education and success in life.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
First night in town I will let them settle in their hotel or Airbnb. This will allow them to rest because if you know me, we are going to be very active the whole week. Some of the places we would visit are City Island ( Seafood City) for some great seafood and drinks. We will also visit a few museums one of them being the Museum of Sex, this place is very interesting and educating at the same time. We will definitely hit the city and go to Times Square because their is so much to do as far as eating, shopping and sight seeing. We are definitely are going to hit the Lower East Side and do some barhopping because this would fun to just enjoy life and let loose. As we come to the end of our extravaganza, I would take them the Sojo Spa in New Jersey so that we can unwind after a fun filled active week.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Well first I want to give a shoutout to the most high which I identify as Jehovah, because without him I wouldn’t be where I am at today. I definitely want to thank my mom and my late dad because they created a beautiful, educated, unique and loving soul which is me ;). I also want to shoutout all my friends and family who have always and continue to support me with my future endeavors. Last but not least, I want to thank my love Ivin because he came into my life at a time that I was beginning to enjoy my happiness and he just boosted the level of endurance I have for myself which keeps me going everyday.
