About

Dawn Araujo-Hawkins

I am a staff writer for the Global Sisters Report, a special project of the National Catholic Reporter that provides coverage of Catholic sisters and nuns.

I graduated from Ball State University with a degree in magazine journalism and French and then studied urban and intercultural issues at Cincinnati Christian University, earning a Master of Arts in Religion.

I have a tenacious faith in the necessity of print media. I love em dashes and semicolons, but my relationship with the Oxford comma is evolving. My longstanding aversion to the inverted pyramid is well-documented.
