In Her Own Words

Wheaton College Undergraduate Admissions Counselor DominiqueBecause I was born in Honduras to an American father and a Honduran mother, I grew up navigating between my father’s Mississippi heritage and my mother’s Honduran roots. Spanglish was the language of my upbringing. From a very young age, I had a very strong awareness of the world and what it meant to be a part of a global society. Upon arriving at Wheaton, I was excited to find professors who shared a passion for diversity and serving students from a number of ethnic, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds.

During my time at Wheaton I majored in Sociology and was involved in the Gospel Choir, served as a campus host and tour guide, and went on a spring break mission trip with the Honduras Project. In combination with the classes I took, these experiences were formative and sharpened me as a follower of Jesus. After graduating in 2013, I spent two years teaching elementary school in the town of Drew, Mississippi. Working as a teacher spurred my passion to make college accessible to all students.

I am excited to share in this experience with you. I look forward to getting to know more about you and serving you as best I can. If you have any questions at all please feel free to reach out. I am here for you!
