Dawn Grabowski likes to be known as an actress first, and Actress/ Performer With a Disability second (PWD). She doesn’t let her disability define her, it’s just another part of her, like her brown hair or her big smile. Aside from logistics Dawn defines her life, she doesn’t let her disability define her.

Dawn is an award-winning actress, motivational speaker, writer, and comedian who has written, produced, sole-financed, performed and presented “Always Going Up” in the Los Angeles area.

Dawn received her “first big break” when she appeared in the movie “Jerry Maguire” with Tom Cruise.
