Difference Maker Dr. Dawn Prince-Hughes
Mankind has a long fascination with apes. Consider Kong a king-sized version of that fascination. For Dr. Dawn Prince-Hughes, her fascination was kindled as a young adult when she watched the way silverback male gorillas played caretaker and peacekeeper, helping to establish community norms. Prince-Hughes has parlayed her fascination with gorillas into a distinguished career that paid off in helping her navigate the hurdles she was with human rapport because of her autism by understanding the gorilla way.
