Dominique Yvette Marshall is a 2nd year graduate student, currently working on a Master's in Social Work (MSW) at Stony Brook University in NY. She holds a cumulative GPA of 3.86!
She wanted to apply for this scholarship for the past few years but had always been too shy to get on camera. She writes- "This is relative to who I am in life as I tend to make bold decisions without wanting the attention. My greatest accomplishment since my college graduation was choosing to go into the Peace Corps and living in Morocco to aid in youth development work. (Learning Darija (Arabic) was actually the least challenging of living abroad). Since this trip I have been a strong advocate of individuals pushing the limits of their lives and doing what they are most passionate about."
