As the founder of Take My Hand LLC, Vanity Dawson is on a lifelong mission to help women heal from trauma and empower them to tap into their infinite God-given potential.
"After enduring a treacherous cycle of sexual and physical abuse, I finally had enough! God had other plans for my life, and it was time to break free. Our traumatic experiences aren’t for us to harbor but to share hope and faith with the people around us that they too can make it through. With God, you will make it through any storm, trauma, or bad experience. Just hold onto faith in Him and trust His process."
Vanity Dawson is a Licensed Therapist, Victim Advocate, Speaker, Author, Coach, and devout believer of Christ whose resilience, compassion, and dedication have all earned her the reputation as a service-centered leader.

However, through her faith in God and unwavering perseverance, she overcame the darkness and stepped into His light and has been empowered to share His light with you.
