Dunn is a 2010 graduate of Washington High School.
Her article, "Propaganda vs. Political Persuasion in Politics: Public Beware," was published in the ninth volume of Young Scholars in Writing: Undergraduate Research in Writing and Rhetoric.
Dunn first wrote the piece for a Composition and Communication course with David Elder, assistant professor of writing and rhetoric at Morningside. Then she revised it into the article that was published in the "Spotlight on First-Year Writing" section of the journal, which only publishes essays originally written for a first-year composition class.
Dunn is a junior at Morningside majoring in advertising.
