Mentoring Teen Girls
Dawn Russell
When Dawn Russell, a spokeswoman for The Estée Lauder Companies and former model, was diagnosed with stage 3 skin cancer in her 20s, she was forced to quickly deal with many difficult life challenges. Now, several years into her recovery, Dawn is using the skills she learned as a cancer survivor to empower young women—especially teenagers—who are struggling with the everyday pressures of their own lives. Dawn offers advice parents can use to mentor their daughter, improve her self-esteem and help her cope with the ups and downs of being a teen.
