(31) Interview with Dionna Walker

"You never want to be the smartest person in the room. It's okay to get help."


Book Author and Founder of Dionna's Helping Hands, Dionna Walker has a passion for helping children and their families which led to being awarded the “Image of Hope Award 2016”. The prestigious community award honors people and organizations who help the area’s youth.

Out of a desire to service her community, Dionna founded the nonprofit organization, Dionna Helping Hands which services families in Dayton, Ohio. The organization provides free clothing, furniture, and other assistances. In an interview with Lean In Ohio, Walker discusses following her passion, purpose and the power we each have.
