With a focus on youth and black and brown communities, Dawn and Nadia worked together to develop a non-profit that would support Nadia's global and community vision for youth, health and tennis and Dawn's vision for health equity, food justice and nutrition education.   



Former Nike Tennis Instructor and NCAA division 1 student tennis athlete for the women's tennis team at North Carolina A&T State University (Greensboro, NC), Nadia attained a Bachelors Degree in Psychology, works and lives in Charlotte, NC.  

Born, November 4, 1995 in Charlotte, NC, Nadia Hilton-Adams was raised the only child for 14 years with single mom, Dawn. By age 11, Nadia had already embraced a robust volunteer & community advocacy life, as her mom's helper. From canvassing and phone banking with political campaigns, to sweeping floors, prepping food and feeding those experiencing homelessness at various churches and shelters, Nadia was a great help to her mother and those causes, which she enjoyed.

From ages 6-10 y/o Nadia was working year-round with private coach, Kofi Mawogbe-Start Right Tennis. Unfortunately, Mr. Mawogbe's untimely cancer-related death affected Nadia so deeply that she put her racquet down for 3 years. The move to Greenville, SC, motivated Nadia to rejoin the game she loved; thriving within USTA rankings as well as holding the #1 spot and being named MVP of her high school team for 4 years.  



Serving as program support, Dawn utilizes her background in business planning & project management, to ensure that checks and balances and a firm foundational organizational structure is in place to aid in forwarding the vision and mission of Power is Giving.   


Dawn hails from Yonkers, NY and resides in Charlotte, NC.  


Dawn has a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from Virginia State University and holds various professional leadership, grant writing and facilitation certifications. Dawn's most recent certification is from E-Cornell in Whole-Food Plant-Based Nutrition, which she uses to aid numerous Power is Giving programs as well as her company, Herban-Eats, LLC. 

Founder of EDD Summits and Herban Eats, Dawn is also an award-winning Playwright/Producer, with an affinity for both the performing and culinary arts (Owner of Herban-Eats, LLC) as well as radicalizing wellness in communities that need it the most.
