Born and raised on Chicago's Southside, Rashada found her passion in performing ever since her father enrolled her in a ballet class at the Southside YMCA. She went from school talent shows and church praise teams to singing before thousands all around the world.
What started out as a 1 year challenge to pursue acting full time, turned into a career that led her to a principle role in a Broadway show, a national commercial, Second City features, multiple Jeff-nominations and a re-occurring role on AMC's 61st Street.
With over 20 years of service to Chicago communities in mental health, anti-bullying and violence prevention, Rashada Dawan is committed to increasing mental wellness and decreasing violence through performing arts.
